Blanket Square Knitting Pattern | Crema Square

The Crema is an 8″ blanket square knit with a simple repeat. The textured purl triangle pattern creates a cozy worsted weight square for your blanket.

This blanket square pattern features knit and purl stitches arranged to create an easy 8 row repeat. The triangular texture creates a diamond lattice pattern throughout the square that’s mesmerizing to the eye.

This simple knit square design pairs well with others so it’s perfect to use with a wide variety of blanket squares.
