Checkerboard Kit from Rowan includes the PDF pattern download and 23 balls of Felted Tweed yarn needed to knit this colorful project. Checkerboard doubles as a blanket or a generously sized wrap sure to keep you warm this fall. Designed by Kaffe Fassett in a gorgeous color palette, this pattern uses Fair Isle and intarsia techniques as you work the piece from end to end, and a crocheted border adds a polished look. Worked in Rowan Felted Tweed, a beautiful DK weight blend of Merino wool, alpaca, and rayon, you’ll love knitting this pattern as much as you’ll love using the finished project.
