Pattern Note Weave in your ends as you go! Use the Weavin’ Stephen technique as you introduce new colorful stripes. Watch this Westknits video to assist with this technique: https://youtu.be/Fz292NAjH2M
Customize the Size You can knit the blanket as long as you want by knitting more or fewer stripes. If you want to customize the width, then add or subtract sts in multiples of 32 sts when you cast on. For example, after you work the first WS row, there are 220  sts. If you want a smaller blanket then aim for a stitch count of 156 or 188 sts at the end of the first WS row. Then, you will be ready for Row 1 with your custom stitch count for a smaller blanket. You can also add stitches to your cast on in multiples of 32 if you want an extra wide blanket.
Color Note The sample features 1 MC with 8 CC’s. You can use as many CC’s as you like. If you use 8 or more CC’s, you will only need one ball or skein (100g) of each color.
