Daisy Chain Blanket - the knitted version

Waiting for a new baby to arrive? A new niece or nephew perhaps? Perhaps you’re looking for a bold new throw for your sofa? Or maybe The Daisy Chain Blanket – the knit version might be just the thing – it’s big and bold, and perfect for Spring and Summer.

The blanket is knitted from the bottom up, starting with a moss stitch border. The daisy pattern is knitted into the main body of the blanket using the intarsia technique, and the moss stitch borders up the sides of the blanket are worked at the same time as the main body. Once you’ve worked the main body of the blanket, you finish it with a top border made of moss stitch. All you need to do at the end is weave in all the loose ends (ok, that might take you a little while, but if you weave some in every few rows, by the time you finish the blanket, there won’t be many left to weave in) and you’re done.

The intarsia blocks in this blanket are nice and large, which means the colour changes aren’t too frequent, making this a good project if you’re fairly new to intarsia – just take it slowly and you’ll be amazed what you can do! The colour changes are included as both a chart and as written instructions.

The pattern is written for three sizes: small, medium and large, so you can choose how large a blanket you’d like to make. Don’t have anyone to make the blanket for? Why not knit it for yourself? The blanket would be perfect for resting over your knees while out on the patio on a summer’s evening.

I very rarely make the same thing more than once, but look what’s currently on my needles… it’s a Daisy Chain Blanket – the knit version with a purple background!
