bernat® blanket o'go™ shifting shades mosaic knit blanket

This impressive mosaic knit blanket might look quite intricate, but the pattern is easier to do than you might think. Using two shades of Bernat® Blanket O'Go™, and a contrasting shade in Bernat® Blanket™, you can build this pattern row-by-row, working with only one skein at a time. By easily slipping stitches, and carrying the yarn up the side of your work as you go, you will have fewer ends to weave in as you watch the pattern unfold. A simple garter stitch edging offsets the intricate pattern beautifully, creating the perfect accent piece for your home.
Step 1

MEASUREMENTS: Approx 55" x 58" [139.5 x 147.5 cm]
GAUGE: 8 sts and 17 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Mosaic Diamonds Pat, save time and check your gauge.
NOTES:
- To begin working with the O’Go format, carefully cut plastic tie where the ends of the O’Go meet.
- Pull tie to remove.
- Worked over multiple of 12 sts +3.
- Carry yarn when not in use loosely up side of work, taking new yarn from behind old, being careful not to twist strands, when changing yarns at beg of row.
- When carrying yarn behind/in front of slipped sts, be sure yarn is loose enough to maintain gauge and prevent work from puckering.
