Rainbow of Possibilities

Wanting a project to brighten your day? Our new Rainbow of Possibilities blanket knit in Morris Empire 8ply is a striking yet simple addition to any homewares collection. Blocks of colour knitted in easy garter stitch, with a range of edging options, the blanket can be customised to suit your skill level and your aesthetic.
If you love an intense rainbow, our chosen palette will be perfect for you! If you prefer something more subdued, opt for pastels, or a sophisticated gradient of blues or greys. The possibilities are endless!
For those who prefer a simple edging, the pattern provides instruction for a slip stitch edge, which gives a lovely smooth finish to the edges of your blanket. This is also a great technique for scarves, and for garments - it makes sewing up significantly neater and easier. 
If you're looking for a challenge, or for something a little different, try the I-cord edging.
For the Rainbow of Possibilities blanket, the I-Cord edge is made on 4 stitches at each side of the work.
To make sure you remember to treat these groups of 4 stitches as a selvedge edge, separate them from your work with stitch markers. This will save you from having to tink later on if you accidentally work the edge stitches in the main pattern.
Row 1:
1. [Slip 1 stitch purlwise with the yarn at the back of the work, knit 1], work brackets twice.
2. Work in the main pattern to the last 4 stitches (the stitch marker will tell you when to stop).
3. [Slip 1 stitch purlwise with the yarn at the back of the work, knit 1], work brackets twice.
Row 2:
1. [Slip 1 stitch purlwise with the yarn at the front of the work, purl 1], work brackets twice.
2. Work in the main pattern to the last 4 stitches (the stitch marker will tell you when to stop).
3. [Slip 1 stitch purlwise with the yarn at the front of the work, purl 1], work brackets twice.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 throughout the project.
The below video by Andrea Mowry demonstrates how to knit an I-cord on the colour change rows.
The video shows a three stitch I-Cord, however the principle is the same.
