BLANKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle. A.1 shows the stripes in the blanket and the knitting direction. Change colour for each stripe – read STRIPES.

BLANKET:
STRIPE 1: Cast on 11 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and heather and work 20 RIDGES – read description above and the last row is from the wrong side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Place stitches on a thread.
STRIPE 2 (change colour): Knit up 1 stitch in each ridge from the long side of stripe 1 = 20 stitches. Work 11 ridges; the last row is from the wrong side. Place the stitches on a thread.
STRIPE 3: (change colour): Knit the stitches from the thread on stripe 1 back onto the needle and knit up 1 stitch in each ridges from the short side of stripe 2 = 22 stitches. Work 10 ridges; the last row is from the wrong side.
STRIPE 4: (change colour): Work 10 ridges; the last row is from the wrong side. Place the stitches on a thread.
STRIPE 5 (change colour): Knit up 1 stitch in each ridge from the long side of stripe 4 and knit up 1 stitch in each ridge from the long side of stripe 3, knit the stitches from the thread on stripe 2 back on the needle = 40 stitches. Work 11 ridges; the last row is from the wrong side. Place the stitches on a thread.
Repeat stripes 3 to 5 upwards (change colour on each stripe) until you have worked 20 stripes; i.e. on stripe 6 you work the stitches from the thread on stripe 4 and knit up stitches from the ridges on the side of stripe 5; on stripe 8 you work the stitches from the thread on stripe 5 and knit up stitches from the ridges on the side of stripe 6 and 7 and so-on upwards.


Cast off after the last stripe; cut and fasten all strands.
