How to Create A Lace Knit Patchwork Throw Blanket

I received this question from Suz…

“I started knitting your educational (learning how to) daily patterns and LOVE them, but after I had made several squares, I realized that they were different sizes. So, I am wondering if you have ever put together an afghan/blanket with all of those patterns but with the squares the same size of each pattern. Without changing colors?
I would love to see this if anyone has, or maybe I’ll be brave and try making one myself! lol. Thank you.”

Thank you so much Suz for asking!

When I was finished with the #21daysoflaceknitstitches series I put together this patchwork lace throw blanket.

One of my favorite blankets, and my kids favorite blanket, is my great-grandma’s patchwork quilt. It’s seen much love over the years. Needless to say, it has seen better days and needs retired. Blankets are one of those gifts that just keep giving… lots of love and warmth and a sense of connection to loved ones that are no longer with us. It’s something tangible to hold onto.

About My Blanket:

  • I didn’t plan this blanket while I was knitting the swatches. :(
  • My swatches are all different sizes.
  • I didn’t use all the swatches, just the ones that fit together nicely.
  • If you know you want to make a throw, you’re way ahead of the game.
  • My finished throw blanket size is 29” x 40” {74cm x 102cm}.

Planning {what I wish I would’ve known before knitting my swatches}:

  • What size do you want your throw blanket to be?
  • What size does each swatch need to be to achieve your final blanket size?
  • Are you going to use the same yarn for each swatch?
  • Are you going to use the same color for each swatch?
  • Are you going to use different stitch types {Lace, Cable, Beginner, 100Days}
  •  
  • Plus, you can puzzle piece it together as you knit each swatch!

Blocking:

I blocked each swatch before I sewed them together and then I blocked it again after I sewed it all together. This process takes a lot of time, so make sure it’s something that you’re going to enjoy doing. You’ll have a beautiful throw blanket when you’re finished!
