Color Swirl Blanket
The entire body of this blanket is textured, including the Intarsia colorwork. At points in the pattern you will be working with up to 15 threads. The texturing allows the blanket to lay flat without blocking.
I recommend using stitch markers placed every 10 stitches to help keep your place on the charts as well as for marking off the hem (a total of 15 markers).
As designed the pattern requires 4 balls (about 800 yds or 732 meters) of background color and 1 ball of each of 4 colors (200 yds, 183 M) worsted weight yarn.
