This week we were sent a copy of the new book, Pick Your Stitch: Build A Blanket by Doreen Marquart (Martingale Press, 2015) to review and giveaway – better yet we’re throwing in the Berroco Vintage Chunky yarn to knit the “Forked Blanket” project from the book.
The book is well laid out with written instructions and photographs of swatches that are large and clear. Each swatch has instructions for the stitch repeat followed by specific interactions for creating a block from that pattern. The next section demonstrates the stitch patterns as blankets – you can either knit the blanket shown or use the patterns as a jumping off point for creating your own design. It’s a great guide for anyone looking for a creative knitting challenge.
