Back to Patterns


So many times, I have been asked if I have a pattern to extend my large afghan squares like Moon’s Shadow, A Walk in the Garden, Fox Fires, or Sweet Caroline.


Well at last here it is…..


Continuum is a versatile design to use as a complete blanket/afghan pattern, or to enlarge any of my large afghan squares.

Starting with a Mandala at the centre, Continuum gradually builds out to form layers of different stitches, giving texture and a flowing theme to this blanket design.

To round 32 you will have a 20 inch square [made with Double knit yarn and a 4mm G hook], this is the part of the design which can be replaced by any of my large squares.

Here is a cushion facing I made in Stylecraft Classique Cotton, with the central square of Continuum.



Rounds 33 to 90 allows you to grow any of the large squares to a full size blanket.

The finished size of this blanket, made with Double knitting yarn and a 4mm hook is 60 inches/152cm square.

Using thicker yarn and a larger hook will give a larger finished size, or you can repeat some of the rounds to grow your blanket as you wish.
