Calton Gill Blanket Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

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.

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.

Needles: 4mm.

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.
