Knitting squares

I was given a pattern for knitting squares directly onto one another so doing away with having to sew them together. I used just left over double knitting wool I happened to have in my stash, hence the odd arrangement of colours. The pattern worked very well and I was pleased with the end result. My hubby has claimed it as his "wuss" blanket for when he needs a "horizontal"

When I was making the above blanket I thought the pattern would lend itself well to two colours and tweaked it a bit to achieve the effect I was looking for. This is going to be a cushion cover but I thought I would do the back differently so that I can chop and change sides whenever I feel like it. You can see how far I have got on the bottom picture.

Lovely blanket, it's a great way to use up odd balls of wool

I'm intrigued that the squares can be knit together as you go. I think the colors look great together, in an attractive design! That's a very useful blanket using scrap yarn! And an excellent idea to have the pillow look different on both sides. I like the intertwining color changes of the cables!

On a tatting note, I recently looked at your Tatted Heart pattern, and I'm looking forward to making it. It is a very clever use of clover leafs in the design and looks easy to tat!
Thanks so much for sharing it!

Fun knitting.....especially when you don't have to sew up afterwards!
