Kay Gardiner's Light in the Window blanket is knit in a single, seamless piece, adding on one miter at a time. The direction of the miters changes midstream. The pattern gives the instructions for knitting the unit of construction (a mitered square block), followed by instructions for knitting the blocks onto each other to form the blanket, and for the patchwork border of rectangular miters and i-cord edging.
(The edgings are free form, and not depicted in the colorway mock-ups.)
Kits include 12 skeins of Ultra Wool, Berroco's machine-washable wool, drop-shipped to you from their warehouse, and a PDF copy of the pattern sent by email, and a PDF noting the color assignments as pictured. Our version uses five or six block colors, plus a "window" color. Please include your Ravelry ID at checkout if you would like the pattern added to your Ravelry library.
