Parallelolamb Blanket

Parallelolamb Blanket includes a PDF with instructions for the Parallelolamb Shawl!

Note: This listing is not for physical samples. It only includes the PDF instructions to knit this pattern.

This DK weight blanket is knit from the center outward with DK weight yarn. Each stripe is knit with one color at a time as you pick up stitches from previous sections, resulting in a seamless project. Sixteen colors of West Wool Tandem are featured in the original sample. This design is a great stash buster for your DK weight yarns or you can hold fingering weight double. Use as many colors as you like to customize this cozy garter stitch blanket.

Finished Measurements: 44” / 112cm wide, 106” / 269cm long. Measurements taken after blocking.

The sample is shown with 16 colors and each color was used 3 times. You can use as many colors as you like.

The final large stripes towards the end of the project require 30 – 40g of yarn for each stripe (SECTIONS 37 – 48).

The center stripes in the beginning of the project require smaller yarn amounts like 5 – 10g for the stripes up to SECTION 15. These are great opportunities to use smaller leftover bits of DK weight yarn or fingering weight held double.

I-cord Border

Approximately 100yds / 91m total (25yds / m or 10g for each of the 4 sides)

Shown in: West Wool Tandem (90% Falkland Merino, 10% Texel; 250yds / 229m per 100g skein)

16 colorways are featured in the blanket. If you work with a multiple of 4 colors like 8, 12, 16, or 20 colors, you will achieve individual color palettes on each side of the blanket.

Color A - Birch Tree

Color B - Pebble

Color C - French Grey

Color D - Lichen

Color E - Grass Green

Color F - Green Olive

Color G - Glass

Color H - Cornflower

Color I - Glow

Color J - White Peach

Color K - Marinière

Color L - Prince

Color M - Beatrix

Color N - Kardemumma

Color O - Berry

Color P - Powder

Needles: Four pairs of US 6 / 4mm in 40” / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

I used a separate needle for each of the four sides. You can use two long needles if you prefer to share one needle with two sides of the Parallelogram. It will be easiest to use four needles, one for each side when you get to the final long stripes at the end of the project.

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 24 sts & 48 rows = 4” / 10cm in garter stitch before blocking
