Elements is a blanket that has a unique textured look and feel. The blanket changes shape several times which makes it both interesting to look at and fun to work on. The blanket is framed with a set of squares and finished with a border which you can easily extend if you want your blanket to be larger. The Stonewashed blanket as I have made it is about 145cm (60inch) square.

My Elements blanket
I really enjoyed making my Elements blanket. It’s a lovely design that works up beautifully and the Stone Washed yarn has a beautiful drape. The finished blanket is about 145cm (60inch) square and I made it using my own colorway. In my Color Chart document I give you the colors for each round of my blanket. My blanket is rather heavy, so if you you prefer a lighter blanket consider using a DK weight yarn such as Scheepjes Color Crafter.
We started Elements with a small center square in part 1, which we turned into a larger square in part 2. Part 3 started the process of making our square a circle, which kept on growing in part 4 and was finished in part 5. The circle became a square again during part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, and part 10. When the large center piece was done we made 24 small squares during part 11 and finished with a border in part 12. I extended my border with 5 extra rounds to give it more body.
