Since I’m making it for a tween-aged boy I have changed the color scheme somewhat — all right, a lot! — and my squares are 8″ instead of the pattern’s 6.25″.
See my happy little yarn cakes waiting to be knit?
And – of course – Maxx-Cat had to supervise the winding.
Which is why all of the yarn for the project now looks like this ↓
But where in all this are the “tips, techniques & tutorials” implied (if not outright promised) in the title of this post?
Right here! Spud & Chloë — Blog.
Susan Anderson, designer of the Dream Catcher Blanket, has made three excellent videos showing how she joins these squares together and weaves in the ends. And since we’re hard at work making those squares for South Africa, we need to know how to join them – right?
See? There was a method to my madness! 🙂
