PATTERN NOTES This blanket is knit flat. The intarsia method is used to change colors for the side borders. When changing colors, bring the old color up and around the new color to prevent holes from forming and use a separate ball for the sections.
When winding the contrast color, break the skein evenly in half for the intarsia method. Please note that the CC takes up nearly an entire skein of yarn. You may wish to purchase a second skein as insurance.
