Tin Can Knits Vivid Blanket Pattern

Tin Can Knits Vivid Blanket Pattern

Out of stock


This almost legendary pattern takes the concept of multiple square blankets to a new level. Knit in any weight yarn, as long as you have enough to make the size you want, you can just keep going forever! We love love love WYS Signature 4 Ply for this because of the almost endless options for colour combinations.

The cast on may be new to many but once mastered, it is not only useful for this pattern but many other knit from the inside out square patterns. It has definitely inspired us here at TLYC to knit more patterns in this style.

As with all Tin Can Knit patterns, the pattern leaflet is clearly laid out, making it a pleasure to knit from.
