Writes designer Amy Swenson, "I can’t help but collect the little 50g Kureyon skeins whenever I run into one I love, or simply when I’m having a bad day. This blanket [was] in progress for the larger part of 3 years, but I [kept] coming back to it for the sheer joy of seeing the colors combine in two row stripes; like a new box of crayons."
Aptly named—Kureyon literally means "crayon" in Japanese—Amy's 64 Crayons blanket is knit in strips and joined at the end, making it an extremely simple and portable project. Each panel uses two contrasting colorways, so have fun when picking...it's impossible to "clash" as long as you keep enough contrast.
Professionally printed pattern.
