On My Needles...Knitting in Technicolor


After the blog post and huge success of my four Technicolor Blankets to Crochet patterns (thank you so much, by the way), I had a fair amount of requests for the same look but blankets you could knit.  Who am I to deny a knitter?  So, I am translating them into knitting patterns.  This is the first in a series of four.  I had some comments from hookers that they could not find one or two of the colors from the crochet patterns, so for the knitting patterns I have substituted those hard to find colors for similar ones that are more readily available.  I should have this first of four patterns ready next week.


Thank you also for the HUGE response and lovely comments to my blog post... Cath Kidston Inspired Blanket!  I'd love to see photos of yours, so be sure to send me a snap shot!

You can find all my pattern shop links at the top of my blog or follow the links below!




Best,
Sheila

Yarn Tip:
Does a pattern call for worsted weight yarn and you only have sport weight in your stash?  Hold your sport yarn double throughout to get a worsted weight gauge of 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch on US size 7 needles.

  1. Sheila, this is so beautiful, as is your crochet technicolor blanket! The vibrancy gives the afghan a tremendous wow factor! As you discussed in the blog post about your crochet version, the process of choosing colors can be...well, quite a process. I wanted to invite you to see how my Cath Kidston-Inspires Afghan is coming along at http://gocrochetcrazy.blogspot.de/2014/03/i-love-surprises.html?m=0
