Battenberg Blanket



#BattenbergBlanket

Good enough to eat… 
This arrangement of squishy colourful squares, alternated with a simple squares in a neutral shade made me think of the chequerboard pink and yellow sponge cubes of a Battenberg Cake, a UK teatime favourite from my childhood days.

Skill Level
Easy/Intermediate
This pattern uses a basic motif with a simple border pattern and a joining method which is a new technique, however a full video tutorial is included. 

Yarn
Any yarn type or weight can be used to make a blanket in this style and the yardage amounts required will depend on the weight of yarn you choose and the size of blanket that you require. (See ‘Making a Battenberg Blanket’ on page 4 for more information.)

To make a blanket of 1020 (34 x 30) squares in mostly 4ply/fingering weight yarn I used:

26 x Off White - 02 (2 of which were used for the border)

Colourful (Contrast) Squares
Approximately 800g/3,200m (3,500yards) of various 4ply/fingering weight sock yarns in a range of colours.

Hook | 3mm (C/D USA) - Or appropriate hook size for your yarn choice.
Materials | Yarn needle

Size | 180 x 156 cm (70 x 62”)
Gauge | Each square is 5cm (2”) across (With yarn and hook given above)
