NOTE: The smaller knitting needles and/or crochet hook are OPTIONAL and only required to add an optional decorative edge. The edge can be knitted OR crocheted so only one or the other will be needed if making an edging. The example has no edging, it is not required.
This blanket is made using a mosaic stitch. There are no colour changes within the working rows, the colour pattern is made by slipping the stitches of one colour, while knitting the stitches of the other.
Written instructions are included along with a chart. Some find using a chart much easier, but others prefer written instructions, so both have been included.
In the example, Col A is light and Col B is dark. This will produce a pattern where the dark colour is more prominent. If you’d prefer the light colour to be more prominent, a reverse chart has been included to make it easier to follow. The written instructions are the same no matter which colour is light or dark.
