Tessellate Baby Blanket
The Tessellate baby blanket is a bold, high contrast design, inspired by patchwork and quilting. The blanket features a strong geometric design created using simple two colour squares that are knitted on the diagonal. You could work the blanket in pastels, as shown, for a really pretty baby blanket, or you could use something brighter and bolder for a more contemporary look.
This pattern is suitable for beginners. All you need to be able to do is knit garter stitch, work simple increases and decreases, and pick up stitches! The project is also perfect for those of you that want an easy project to take along on days out over the summer – it’s worked as individual squares, so is the perfect portable project.
Diagrams of alternative seaming arrangements are also included, as well as details on how to make a larger or smaller blanket. .
You can use any aran weight yarn to make this blanket (sample is knitted in Three Bears Yarn Affection 100% Cotton Aran).
