The main challenge of the Zoe blanket is using proper intarsia when switching colours for the different hearts, and keeping the yarn organized on the backside. Intarsia has the advantage of not only limiting yarn usage for the different colours and keeping the backside neat and tidy, it makes the blanket safe for use even for very small babies – ensuring thus that their fingers don’t get stuck in the loops on the backside.
To make the heart rows, it is best to organize the main colour (off white in this model) into smaller skeins of about 20m, which will avoid that the different yarns get tangled up on the backside.
