 Ravelry Project Page - Homespun Diagonal Square Blanket

What happens if you take 4 skeins of Homespun yarn, size 13 circular needles, and you start knitting the Diagonal Garter-Stitch Square?

Not a bad blanket!! The end result was a blanket that is stretchy but light approximately 45" square.

It's nothing new or unique but here's what I did:

4 skeins Lion Brand Homespun
Size 13 circular needles.

Cast on 4 stitchs.

Row 1: Knit
Increase Row: Knit 2, yarn over, knit remaining stitches.

Repeat increase row until you have used 2 skeins of the Homespun (I left a little just to make sure I had enough.

Decrease Row: Knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit remaining stitches.

Repeat decrease row until you have 5 stitches left on needle then, knit 2, knit 2 together, knit 1.

Bind off.

This pattern produces a knit 2 lace border. On my next blanket I'm going to adjust the pattern for at least a knit 3 boarder (maybe knit 4) I think I'll like a bigger border. I'll let you know.
