Make your own beautiful patchwork blanket, with the knit-and-purl wizards at Wool and the Gang

Shop Wool and the Gang

As part of the #LibertyCraftClub, our community of creatives share tutorials for easy and accessible craft projects to complete together. For this instalment, the yarn-lovers at Wool and the Gang shows us how to create a simple yet striking patchwork blanket, using their Come Together Blanket pattern.

You will need:

  • Leftover yarn – quantity dependent on blanket size. The Wool and the Gang knitters used 6 x balls of Shiny Happy Cotton yarn, 6 x balls of Billie Jean yarn and 6 x balls of Feeling Good yarn

  • 1 x Come Together Blanket pattern

  • 1 x pair of 8mm (US11) knitting needles

  • 1 x sewing needle

  • Casting On

    We would normally tell you to make a tension swatch before you start, but for this pattern, the squares are the same size as a tension swatch. So check your tension, make your first square, then simply measure it.

    Garter Stitch

    You can mix any colours together to create this unique blanket, and use up all your scrap yarn!

    Casting Off

    Cast off your stitches, leave a 40cm/15.8” length each of yarn, then cut your yarn and secure your last stitch.

    Assembly and Finishing

    After knitting your patchwork pieces, finish by working in any loose ends and then stitch them together using the horizontal and vertical seam techniques outlined in the Come Together Blanket pattern – you can even make your patchwork pieces while on-the-go, and then assemble them at home later on.

    Voila! A beautiful blanket to treasure, made entirely from scrap yarn. Create a cohesive colour scheme, or go eclectically multi-hued – the choice is all yours.
