Free Knitting Pattern for Blanket Squares

This pattern was originally written for all my friends at the 
Womens Institute who are knitting a blanket for charity.
♥ Thought I’d share the love ♥ 

The knitting pattern is for two really easy Garter Stitch Blanket Squares. 
There’s a choice of two blanket sizes:
 3”/7.5cm x 3”/7.5cm or a 6”/15cm x 6”/15cm square. 
Each square is knit diagonally to ensure a perfect square. 
I designed the original blanket in a Gingham pattern formation, 
but, have left the choice of yarn colour open 
to the individual knitter as it would be 
very difficult to co-ordinate the yarn colours with
 so many knitters involved. 
Each square takes a tiny quantity of D.K. yarn. 
Approx 9 yards for the 3in/7.5cm square and 
36 yards for the 6in/15cm square. 
It’s a perfect pattern for those who would like to design their 
own blanket and those new to knitting. 
If you can increase, knit and decrease you can knit these squares!!

The pattern is also now available as a free download on the Knit for Peace website.

  1. what type of stitch do you use to sew the pieces together? I have looked online but can't figure it out because the squares were knit on a diagonal. Thanks!

    1. We use a simple mattress stitch. If you pick up the edge loops of the garter stitch with your tapestry needle and sew together using mattress stitch, the blanket should work out to be reversible!
