A patchwork blanket of the knitted variety

knitting, patchwork

Not sure if anyone out there has seen the DFS advert with that gorgeous patchwork sofa. Well I’m in love with that sofa and so very much want it for my dining room. But alas, even in the sale, its out of my price bracket. So I have decided to knit myself a patchwork blanket/throw for a cheaper sofa in the hope it’ll make it a bit more quirky.

Now I’m not the best of knitters, my knowledge and skill are pretty basic. So my first square is pretty much the most basic of all – think its called garter stich – anyway its knit, knit, knit.

I will be watching plenty of YouTube videos in the coming weeks to expand my skills.

My first square has been started and here’s how it looks 🙂
