Patons Jet, Wool Alpaca Mix 10 Balls
6mm Knitpicks Options x 2
I started with a circular provisional cast on, and added extra stitches to double the pattern (make it square), and also to make each of the four "ribs" double instead of single knit stitches (just to make it easier to knit in the round.
It took me about 6 weeks, but I moved house in the middle of it, and just got around to blocking yesterday. iPod included for scale. The edging is just moss stitch (seed stitch). Knitted for my new neicephew, due in December '07.
I have the yarn to do this again, but following the edging charts too - for a much bigger blankie, for my baby, due in November.
