PATTERN: Sophisticated Greek Key Blanket
This PDF pattern includes written English instructions, as well as a pattern template.
The Sophisticated Greek Key Blanket features repeating Greek Keys, which are a famous 'meander' motif in Greek architecture and art. A meander is a repeating motif constructed from a continuous line.
The finished blanket features four of these motifs, constructed using knit, purl and horizontal chain stitches (a stitch of my own invention for loop yarn - instructions are included in the pattern - once you know how to horizontal stitch, it opens you up to a world of possible patterns and designs, including brioche-style knits!
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate/Advanced.
SUGGESTED MATERIALS: 5 balls of Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ Yarn (6.4 oz/180g (Image shown is the colour ‘Dijon’).
SUGGESTED TOOLS: No needles required (finger knitting). Scissors.
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Approx. 44” by 44” (112 cm by 112 cm).
PLEASE NOTE: This pattern will work with any brand of loop yarn, but keep in mind that the size of the loops, and size of the balls/skeins of each brand is different.
Lion Brand Off-The-Hook, Lion Brand Crayola Off-The-Hook, Red Heart Loop-It yarn and Alize Puffy fine yarns can all be used with this pattern but will yield a blanket with smaller overall dimensions. You will also need more balls/skeins to complete the pattern as-is (approximately 2-3, depending on yarn used).
