This blanket is inspired by the bright, exciting and high-contrast graphics of comic books and American Pop Art, and my love of polka dots in general. MMMmmmm who doesn't love a good polka dot?
This blanket has been kicking around in my box of design ideas for a good long time, but it suddenly KNOCKED on the inside of my head and DEMANDED to POP out into the world. So here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Sizing Blanket can be made any size desired. When made to the gauge suggested, the squares measure approximately 6.25” square. The sample is baby blanket size, it measures 26 x 32.5”. Of course you can knit this pattern in any yarn and gauge that you like, but note that this will change the yardage requirements. POP is a fabulous project for using up colourful scraps of leftover yarn.
Yarn 1 Square = 15 yds CC (circles), 20 yds MC (white) baby blanket size (20 squares): 300 yds CC, 400 yds MC (I used Noro Kureyon in 272 & 284 for CC and Cascade Ecological Wool in 8010 for MC)
