Heartwood is an easy to knit blanket suitable for the beginner knitter with a little experience. The pattern is in written form and easily remembered so a great take along or TV project.
I have knitted these samples in two and four colours but Heartwood would look just as good in just one colour. The four colour blanket is knitted in Paintbox Yarns Simply DK and the 2 colour blanket was knitted up in a cotton DK yarn from King Cole. Each blanket takes just four 100g balls of yarn, approx. 1000m of yarn in total.
If you wish to change the colours used, I have supplied space in the pattern for you to put in your own colour sequence twice, so you can colour in and see which colours you prefer. This is also handy to remember which colour is which when you have changed to your own colours.
Finished blanket size is 64 x 76 cm / 25 x 30 inches.
