KOGO Blanket ~ Finished!

I started this blanket just after Christmas, during my lovely summer holiday, a distant memory, sigh.

I made it to use up all my leftover pink stash. Turns out, I had quite a bit of red too, plus I couldn’t help buying a few extra shades, just to finish it off, oops!

I’m very pleased with it. I’ve never joined squares using this method before, basically joining right sides, using DC stitches – first horizontal, then vertical. It helped keep the blanket “squarer” than any other method I’ve used.

I think the red “top stitching” kind of tied all the colours in too.

As I’ve mentioned before, this blanket is for KOGO (Knit One Give One), a Melbourne group of crafters who knit and crochet for charity.

The pattern is on the gorgeous Purl Bee blog. It’s called Bear’s Rainbow Blanket.

Obviously, I’m going to have to pick out the black Moo-furs before I post it off! πŸ˜€

  1. What a beautiful blanket! And interesting joining method. Did it use up a lot of yarn? The joining, I mean. I am about to finish the squares for a blanket, and haven’t decided about the joining method yet…
    Also, I know everything about lab-fur, in my case I have to handpick out chocolate brown furs of everything, one by one, including my favourite white sweater, which turned out to be a bold choice for a mum with two small kids and a puppy πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Poppy! I guess it probably did use a bit more yarn to join than what I normally do (sew them together with a big needle)! It was definitely much nicer to do though than sewing them together. Love the white sweater, haha! A very bold choice for sure, lol!
