A mitered square blanket with pom poms. This is an addictive project, one that can be picked up and put down as your time demands. It was created in Lock down, hence the name . You can make it as big or as small as you like.
I've made this one with 80 squares.
The pattern introduces you to the technique of the mitred sqaure and how to work it without any seaming. You can then create your own design or follow my bordered design.
Dimensions: 80cm x 100cm
Pair of 4mm straight needles, tapestry needle and a stitch marker
Approx 640g of DK Yarn, if working the Lockdown blanket you'll need approx 320g of each colour.
We used our very own British Barefaced in Clotted Cream and Nougat, a hand dyed shade. Buy our exclusive yarn for your project here: https://jostorieknits.com/products/lockdown-blanket-yarn-bundles
Although not at all critical for this project, use the appropriate needle size for your chosen yarn, your proportions will of course differ from mine
