This is the second pattern in the series exploring Open Selvedge Treatments and accompanies the article on Picot Selvedges. The project is a baby-sized blanket worked on the bias in a diamond shape, or point-to-point, making the project edges mainly selvedges with only a few cast-on and bound-off stitches. The blanket can be made larger or smaller by working more or fewer repeats of the two center sections. Changing the size of the blanket will change the yarn requirement. Bulky yarn makes the project move a little quicker and I’ve chosen a yarn that is superwash, making it more child-friendly although I always recommend hand washing hand knits to ensure that the integrity of the fabric is maintained. Hand washing allows you to be more gentle with the item and also prevents any inadvertent snagging of the stitches.
