10 Stitch Twist Blanket - Finished!


This project felt like it took forever, and I'm so glad it's finally done. I also love the finished result, so it was worth all that effort. Here's my 10 Stitch Twist blanket in all its 72" diameter glory.

I ended up using 36 balls of Palette, double stranding 2 colors together throughout. I switched out one color at a time (every 3/4 of a round or so) so that the color transitions are pretty gradual. Frankie Brown's 10 Stitch Twist pattern is clever and simple - it's excellent tv/movie knitting and keeps you warm at the same time!



Melissa - our color guru - helped me pick out the colors to match my sofa, and the blanket looks wonderful draped over the arm of the sofa - ready to curl up with a good book when I am. And the ample size means no cold toes.

You know what? I just had a thought....if you bought two of your favorite Palette Sampler that is on sale, together they would make an incredible, color-coordinated blanket like this! What a deal! You'll find them on our Kits web page - hurry, they're almost gone.

I'm sorry Carol - I don't know that either. You may not want a blanket as big as mine - it's huge! I think I'd recommend 4 balls of each color, but 8 balls of the colors that are repeated in the sequence. Dye lot really doesn't matter since you're always double stranding two colors together, so if you need more, it's safe to buy more later.

Sometimes I just have to make a project exactly how someone else has made it - like in this case! So beautiful. I may have missed it somewhere on your blog, but can you tell me how many of each palette color I need to buy. Thanks.

this is one of the few afghans I've found artistically appealing! The unusual shape and melding of colors make it truly unique and a work of art. As it happens I do have some of the Palette Samplers and continually mull over what could be done with them...this might just be the answer. Thanks for sharing.

I made a blanket using this pattern out of Swish, in gold and blue (Notre Dame colors). It seemed to take a long time at first, then went quickly once the circles were established. I would do it again the way you did, with the gradual color changes and not just the two colors. But it was unique and so, so soft and was a very relaxing knit!!
