BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long 2017
Join us for the 2017 BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long. Each month 3-4 patterns will be released. The squares will mostly focus on simple and repetitive patterns, but there will be a few more difficult squares. The squares will be an exploration of techniques, including: texture, cables, lace, colorwork, knitting, and crochet. You may choose to knit all of the squares or just the ones you like best. The blanket will be designed to be 3.5 by 3.5 feet square. Patterns may be purchased monthly or yearly. Blanket kits will include a yearly subscription to the BSBAL and enough yarn to make the lap blanket. For those who would like a larger blanket, a Supersize Kit will be available (just knit more of your favorite squares).
