You may never have considered cotton for a blanket, but consider this as alternative to acrylic or wool. It would be a beautiful year-round colorful accent to your home.

Intarsia Knit in Intarsia , panels, or a combination
The easiest way to knit this blanket is to knit panels, alternating the blocks and using sew-as-you-go

If you enjoy the challenge of Intarsia and want a wide blanket, you could knit multiple intarsia panels. The real challenge will be keeping the color blocks in the correct order!

All of the blocks are worked with 2 strands. The "plaid" is created by alternating the colors.
