A knitting pattern for a blanket featuring colourful Spanish tiles inspired from a trip to the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. The blanket is worked in 4 strips of 6 tiles and the tiles have garter stitch borders which are knitted as you go along.

A great way to use up those left-over yarns.

There are large charts to follow for the tiles and detailed instructions for colour changes.
