FO: Mitered Square Blanket

The Mitered Square Blanket is finished!
Pattern: Plymouth Pattern 1063
Yarn: Noro Kureyon, 20 skeins of various colors, Auracania Nature Wool and Nature Wool Chunky (leftovers), Malabrigo Worsted (leftovers)
Needles: US 8 (5 mm)
Finished Size: 48″ Wide x 60″ Long
Mods: Several. First of all, I substitued Noro Kureyon and some yarns from my stash in place of the Plymouth Boku. I used size US 8 needles for the entire blanket instead of using sizes 7, 8 & 10.
I also added an extra row of squares to the width and height of the afghan, and worked two extra rows on the edging.
I really like the red and pink in this square.
I’m a bit fascinated and pleased with how the lines from the center mitered stitch on each square make diagonal lines across the blanket.
The wrong side of the blanket. I’m very glad I wove in the ends as I went along and didn’t wait until the blanket was completed. I’m sure it would have been quite a bit longer before it would have made it to finished object status!
A great pattern, great yarn and a fun knit – I’m very pleased with it!

    It is too beautiful for words. It’s fantastic. You were smart to weave in the ends as you went along.

    Absolutely amazing. I love the squares of other yarns you mixed in with the Noro. It’s such an amazing accomplishment. Love it!
