Succulent strawberry is the ninth in a series that makes up my Nature’s way blanket, and features a plump, juicy strawberry against a yellow 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 strawberry chart without the border is 43 sts by 58 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.
