From Advanced Beginner to the more Experienced level knitter this is a skill building project introducing new techniques as it is worked. It is a fun and exciting project, enriching the knitter with a great sense of accomplishment as each square is completed and a new one begins. The blanket is knit in 5 strips, each with 6 patterns. The strips are then crocheted together and finished with a crochet trim.
In addition there is a schematic for a 12 square Baby Blanket that uses fun textured patterns with a stockinette square for monogramming.
I am so happy to finally introduce the
The Sampler Blanket, 30 Knit Squares - 30 Stitch patterns,
available as a softcover printed book on Amazon.com
and as a PDF download on Ravelry.com.
For many years, this 30 pattern sampler blanket has been a favorite project with my students. The pattern has been revised and updated with charts and photographs added for each square along with the written pattern instructions.
