There are so many reasons I like knitting the Knitting Central Sampler Blanket. But I think the #1 reason on the board is that it never gets boring. In just a few days I knit six different swatches for the first strip of the blanket. It knits up quickly, is interesting for about 2 hours, then switches to another swatch with a new pattern to learn and a new level of interest. This keeps this blanket moving ever-so-quickly.
#1 Diamond Medallion
#2 Eyelet Check
#3 Diagonal Rib
#4 Bramble Stitch
#5 Knotted Cable
#6 Pebble Stitch
Each swatch is fun to knit. But I have my favorites. For this strip I enjoy knitting the Bramble Stitch and the Pebble Stitch the most.
Stay tuned for more swatch knitting in the weeks to come. Have you made a sampler blanket? Which pattern is your favorite to knit? Which overall blanket is your go-to resource? I have a few more I want to try next...
