For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: Two 100g hanks of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Undyed (100% BlueFaced Leicester Wool, 225m/246yds per 100g) in shade A (shade 01 Natural Ecru) and
One 100g hank each of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Undyed in shade B (shade 02 Natural Light Brown) and shade C (shade 03 Natural Brown).
Metres for shade A: Approx. 440m.
Metres Each for shade B and C: Approx. 220m.
My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: Mohair Tweed Four 50g balls of shade A and Two 50g balls each of shade B and shade C,
or Illustrious Naturals DK Two 100g hanks of shade A and One 100g hank each of shade B and shade C.
Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 42 rows to 10cm square over pattern using 4mm needles.
Measurements: Each square is 15cm x 15cm.
This makes 30 squares in total: 15 squares with shades A and B, and 15 squares with shades A and C.
My design ideas and advice: One of the great things about this square blanket is that the squares are knitted individually so you can get a sense of satisfaction when you complete one. I like to stack the squares in piles, which look lovely and help you keep an eye on the progress you’re making! Knitting the squares is a great way to relax because you can just do one or two rows in between other things or if you have a couple of minutes.
