Waterlily is a patchwork effect blanket consisting of 48 individually knitted mitred squares which have been stitched together & embellished with separately worked floral motifs.
I have knitted my blanket using Stylecraft Special DK yarn in soft shades of green but any of your favourite toning colours would work equally well & the pattern is suitable for most DK/8 ply yarns .
If preferred, to highlight the contrasting stitch textures within the design, the blanket could just as effectively be knitted in a single colour.
Measurements & materials: The completed blanket (including edging) measures approximately 39 ins x 48 ins (99 cms x 122 cms) but could be made larger or smaller as liked by changing the number of squares used. The blanket uses a total of 600g of yarn.
