Gather a colorful collection of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit this rectangular blanket. Slip stitches form the brick motif, so you only have to work with one color at a time. Choose a main color to frame all of the contrast color pops. This pattern is great for using leftover bits of yarn for the brick stripes. I-cord edges frame the perimeter for a crisp clean finish. Choose between the small or large width and customize the length by knitting as many bricks as you want. This blanket is very beginner friendly, so you can enjoy your beautiful colors with easy to knit stitches.
