Throw rug 104cm x 132cm (41inches x 53inches) in Jet 10ply wool/alpaca using
almost one kilo of wool that I bought on ebay some time ago as a
discontinued colour. The diamond pattern repeat is 16 rows and has
edging of moss stitch. 8 diamond repeats in width and 17 repeats in length.
This is an experiment with large (33 cm) diagonal knitted squares using left over wool (4 ply and 5 ply). Two colours have been knitted in each striped section to give a variegated textured effect. Not sure where to take this next as a lot more squares required to make this into a bed rug, and have lost the inspiration for knitting more squares at present.
