Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting 

Four separate wedges, beginning with the outer contrasting edging, are worked backwards and forwards in rows. The sides of the wedges are joined unsing mattress stitch, then the centre is completed over six rounds.

The edging of 'noughts' is a modified feater and fan stitch patten with stitches cast off and cast on to create large holes. The textured pattern of simple crosses is worked into the shaping sequence and is easily memorised. The fashioned decreasing worked along the sides creates an easy sewing edge, perfect for mattress stitch.

The blanket can be worked in two or five colours; with the contrast edging in a single colour or each side edging ina different colour.
