This gorgeous blanket is featured in the latest Mollie Makes mag and is taken from Heirloom Knitting Skills by Rita Taylor. Fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!
I will be using Jarol Heritage DK as there is such a wide colour range and the perfect silver grey as the base colour.
This is the first square:
Being stocking stitch for the most part, it does curl in on itself as you can see in the picture but blocking / sewing the squares together will get rid of that.
Jarol Heritage is 55% wool and we have it in the shop at £3.69 for 100g.
I'll let you know how many grey squares you get from 1 ball when I get that far! The centres use very little yarn so you might be able to use up your scraps.
I might crochet round the edge of the squares before sewing them together to make the blanket a little brighter than it's orginal intention.
