Vivid Blanket


Most of my life I have been ambivalent about babies. I was quite surprised that turning 30 and meeting a handsome man who wants kids has changed my outlook... Now I'm having vivid daydreams about a future that includes little ones, and these fantasies have begun to materialize in knitting!

Vivid is lace patchwork that can be knit in any weight of yarn. I made a baby blanket size in a range of bright primaries.


sock or 4-ply: 70 yds per square
DK weight: 100 yds per square
worsted / aran: 130 yds per square

Shown in Jamieson & Smith Jumper Weight (20 squares, weighs 225 g)


sock or 4-ply: US # 5 / 3.75 mm
DK weight: US # 7 / 4.5 mm
worsted / aran: US # 9 / 5.5 mm


I recommend that you knit a square using suggested needles, block it and see if you like the finished size and density.


Stitch markers, darning needle
