So let’s start talking a little bit about this pattern, but it is important to know a few points about it to start making it, even if it is already in the PDF it is good to always point it out, ok?

This wonderful Knitting work is made up of several blocks that altogether make up a larger block that in turn forms the whole pattern. In short: small squares form larger squares, and thus the knitted blanket as a whole.
This is really an easy pattern, really easy to make, and for us here at home, especially for me, a beginner in knitting, I found it really easy and I’m going to start practicing my knitting!
Here below is some attention-grabbing information that the author said is important, so read it carefully:
Please note the following before continuing to knit: Use colours of your own choice for the remainder of the border and avoiding using a shade that is included in the panel or square to which it will be attached. After every 56-row section swap the shade that has already been used over two sections.
It is best to start attaching the border after several sections have been completed and continue to attach as you go. This makes it easier to control the colour and corner placement.
If you choose to attach all of the border at the end, regular checks should be made as you go along.
Beginning on any side, attach the border in a clockwise direction. Each section when slightly stretched should be attached to the edge of the blanket to match the 15 cm sections. Where you have a panel or square of 30 cm or 45 cm you will have 2 or 3 of these sections.
Cont making 56-row sections until border fits around the entire blanket and when a corner is reached continue in the colours that were used for the previous section, shaping the border as folls:
Corner decrease With RS facing, dec 1 st at beg of next row and at same edge of every row until 2 sts rem, ending with WS facing for next row. Next row (WS):K2.
Swap out 1 colour.
Corner increase With RS facing inc 1 st at beg of next and at same edge of every row until you have 9 sts. Cont in these colours for a full section. Join these shaped edges to form a mitred corner. When border is complete, cast off and sew ends together and attach remaining border.
