For lovers of pre-made kits, you will be charmed by the Perfect Square Throw blanket kit from Noro.
Several different sized squares combine with the self-striping colors of Taiyo yarn to create a colorful geometric blanket. Squares are knit from the outside edge in towards the center, with many of them picked up and built off of previous squares to minimize seaming. Cotton, silk, wool, and nylon combine with long color shifts in Taiyo yarn to create vibrant projects that are soft to the touch and perfect for snuggling into.
Each kit includes 9 balls of Taiyo yarn [40% Cotton/30% Silk/15% Wool/15% Nylon/100g/220yds], a brown paper bag and a free copy of the pattern.
