Ha, I believe you have forgotten all about Mitered and Chequered, haven´t you? 🙂
Well, it was not exactly on top of the project pile, however, it got finished, washed and folded. I am very pleased with how it turned out, even though next time I decide to make a blanket, it certainly will not be from a fairly thin cotton yarn 🙂
The final measurements are 100 x 115 cm. I opted for a wide border when I run out of the white, as the replacement white is a teeny bit thicker, which was OK in the border but may have been a problem in individual squares.
The mitered squares are basically these, only with 2ch rather than 3ch in the corners. The white squares are just your basic granny squares. I whip stitched them together row by row.
The final round in the border is made of double Vs, as described here.
I like the blanket very much, I adore the neat rows and rows of cotton stitches. I hope Pip will like it just as much, as it will eventually be a cover of his bed (once moves out of the cot, that is 🙂 ).
I took this post to party!
