The Playful Pinwheels Blanket, also by Cheryl Murray, is a great “TV knitting” or travel project – it’s easy to work in repeating squares so once you’ve got the basic design you don’t need to think too hard. Machine washable and cozy in any season, there are a couple of “swirl” variations to choose from. Plus, it’s portable since the squares are seamed together afterwards – so there’s no need to lug a big project with you to the beach or in the car!

Size: 57″ by 66″ blocked.
Gauge: 18 sts and 26 rows to 4″ in St st using US #8 needles.
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn, 10 balls • Only $5.75/each when you buy enough for this project!
