Patchwork Knit Blanket
If you can knit a scarf, you can make a blanket. (You don't even need to add or reduce stitches!) This coverlet is made from 12 individually knit rectangles of natural-colored wool, sewn together with a contrasting yarn, so the seams show.
Before you begin, learn how to knit. This project blends knitting and crocheting techniques, since you will finish the knit blanket's trim with a single crochet. The process used to make this blanket is easy to adapt to make a throw for a sofa or even a baby blanket. Adjust needle size as necessary to obtain correct gauge.
