I want to make more squares from the book with beads but will use the ones that I already have and add these squares to the middle of the blanket. That way I can use the wooden beads in red and black as these thread onto the yarn easily and will create added interest to the finished item. It will create a themed pattern using red and black beads with bright yarn so they stand out.
This was the first time I had added beads to my knitting and was surprised how easy it is so I have learned something new by making these lovely squares.
The blanket will be sampler blanket that way I won't get fed up knitting the same squares. I will have to repeat some of them but can make them in different colours that way they will look a little different. One of my favourites are the ones with leaves in the corner so I may make more of them, time will tell as I work the blanket.It will take some time to complete it but will be worth the effort and make a bright blanket for the bed.
