My little apple tree
My little apple tree is the fourth in a series that makes up my Nature’s way blanket, and features an apple tree with bright red apples against a green background. It can be knitted as a square in a blanket, used as a wash cloth, or the chart can be extracted and used as a motif for jumpers and other items. When knitted in DK weight yarn, the finished square measures 10 inches (25 cm); the tree chart without the border is 31 sts by 53 rows. Both coloured and symbol charts are provided.
Patterns for each of the intarsia squares are available individually at a cost of £1 each; the pattern for the whole blanket is also available from my Ravelry store and costs £5.
Tools: 4 mm (US 6) needles; tapestry needle; bobbins for colour work. For needles, size should be changed to match gauge (22 sts and 30 rows to 4 inches (10 cm)).
Materials: Any DK weight yarn in the following colours: Meadow green (or any other background colour desired, 75 m/85 yds), Bright green (
