Project of the year blanket. so far! 

So last Christmas my mum signed me up to ‘The Project of the Year’ as a gift. This project is run by the very friendly lady who owns the knitting and wool shop in my town. The project for this year was to make a big knitted blanket out of knitted squares. These squares are to be made in a variety of different sizes, patterns and colours. Once every month I go and pick up my package from the shop which contains all of the wool I will need for that month and instructions on the pattern. This is such a great scheme and since starting it I have learnt so many different techniques! Here are some of the squares I have completed so far… 

This was the first months knitting and both of these are stocking stitch ( 1st row knit, 2nd row purl)
This was the second months and yet again this is stocking stitch. But this time with changing of the wool to incorporate a new colour into the pattern
The third month taught me how to knit in blackberry stitch. This ended up taking a lot longer then the first 2 months combined!

To knit in Blackberry Stitch: 

1st row: P 

2nd row: K1, *(K1, P1, K1) into the next st, P3tog, rep from * to last st, K1 

3rd row: P 

4th row: K1, * P3tog, (K1, P1, K1) into the next st, rep from * to last st, K1

Rep rows 1-4 to form pattern. 

Since Christmas I haven’t been able to do as much knitting as I would of liked as I have been doing my A-levels and got side-tracked by knitting lots of mittens! But I now back into it and making great progress! More to come soon 🙌💪🔥

    1. The blackberry stitch is so nice, takes a while but it feels great and so does the fur! It was like a fluffy wool, I can’t remember now what it was called but it was difficult to knit with lol
