This is another Rambling Rows, the brain child of Cottage Creations’ Carol Anderson and Pat Penney. It’s the smallest of the versions the pattern provides. On size 7 needles, knitted up in the worsted weight version of Berroco Comfort, it is 28 inches by 34 inches. To me, it seems like it would be an excellent size for a car seat cozy.
Comfort has great color selection: 66 solids, 13 heathers and 14 print shades. Color choice is not always my strong suit, but I am pleased with how these play together. Quite a 60’s sensibility, including avocado, burnt orange, dark brown. There are a lot of stitches to pick up as each of the individual 55 mitred blocks are connected together. Comfort was a bit splitty for that task. But with just a bit of extra care it worked out fairly well.
Seeing your post is a bit uncanny…I’ve been thinking about knitting a mitred square baby blanket to stash bust and then you post this beauty! I’ve not knit with Comfort yet so will keep that in mind for the future. I’m committed to my yarn diet for now.
@Evelyn…this can be a great stash busting project. I’ve knit it without following the suggested patterning and it still comes out great.
Gorgeous blanket! Looks like it was fun to knit 🙂
This is just glorious. What wonderful colours. I do hope you enjoyed knitting it and enjoy owning it because I certainly would.
