Ok - I've finally picked colours, I've gone for 4 muted balls, a beige (to represent overcast days), light blue (bit of sky), dark blue (lots of sky) and a dark grey (for when it's a storm and really raining). My colours are on my blog post here: http://paperbeau.weebly.com/3/post/2013/01/sky-blanket-craft-1.html
I've picked the colours so that I can make a knitted blanket/throw which I can keep for a long time. I'll use the largest needles I have to try to make it a bit holey - I want to make a square for each month and then attach them together somehow into a blanket.
I've only ever knitted scarves (in one colour) before!
Help! - do I need to keep all the colours going the whole time or just cut them off when I swap to a new colour?
- Decision! I'm going to cut them if they aren't used within 5 days.
Also, I'll go there and back each day (2 rows
so to make a square do I need to cast on 30 or 15 or 60 stitches? I think 30 but I'm really unsure
, - I've found a website which says the ratio is about 4:5 stitches to rows, so that would be 24 stitches : 30 rows - is this right? :s some help would be really appreciated.)
Thanks in advance! You all seem so friendly I'm sure someone has the answers, or a link to a blog which does!
