Christmas in July
The pattern is rather detailed and consists of four different designs. The approximate size of the blanket working with light weight (DK) yarn will be about 1.5 -1.6 m (59-63 in). The size will depend on your tension, the hook size and the yarn weight you use for the project.
For this pattern you need at least two contrasting colors. I was using six.
