Description ~ Enter Counterpanes

Winter is coming! A knitted counterpane inspired by Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, this blanket is knit piecemeal square by square and to invoke an old-world design with a modern twist. We’ll work from a written pattern to create textured squares on the bias with only knits and purls, cover slip-stitch crochet seaming, counterpane history, how to create a picked-up and knit border, and proper blocking techniques. This is a perfect travel project designed for knitters on the go!
