Knitted Garter Stitch Blanket

Hi Zimmermaniacs!

Garter Stitch Blanket Finished

Pattern: Knitted Garter Stitch Blanket from The Opinionated Knitter.
Yarn: Scraps! I used up odd balls that were leftover from other projects. The yarn is mostly wool, with some wool blends here and there, and mostly worsted weight held double. I began this project by separating the scraps into two piles - blues/greens/purples in one pile, pinks/browns/yellows in the other. Then I knit two sections with the "blues" and the other two sections with the "pinks." Other than that initial organization, I randomly chose the color sequence with the help of my five-year-old.
Needles: US 15, straight.
Finished Size: 68" by 42" - It's big!
Start: June 4, 2007
Finish: June 13, 2007
A very quick knit for something so very large.

A few more pictures are over at my blog.

  • I love it. I've wanted to make that pattern, but never had enough yarn to really make it. But seeing your version makes me realize I can do scraps!!
