Pinwheel Blanket


Pinwheel Blanket

Well here it is, my Pinwheel Blanket Redux. This one was alot faster to knit since I cast on correctly this time and had 1/2 the stitches from my last try.

I used 3.5 skeins of Koigu Kersti and size 9 needles. The blanket is about 24 inches in diameter; it stretched a lot with blocking (pre blocking diameter was 18inches).

Here's a bird's eye view:

The color in this pic is a little too light. I'm glad I went up a needle size from the previous version of this blanket...it drapes a lot more nicely now. I have some green DK yarn that I'm thinking will make a good crocheted border. I think it would be cute if I put some little bobbles or loops on the points, whatcha think?

I think it looks fantastic! The colors are so lovely. I think you should just put on a border - that way you don't distract from the great colorway.

Cute! I wouldn't do too fancy of a border--its really quite cool the way it is.
