IMPORTANT NOTE: The pattern designer has updated and changed the pattern since this tutorial was released in 2013. The construction and the techniques used are the same, but the row-by-row instructions I use in this video are different than written in the updated pattern. Please follow the pattern for row-by-row instructions.
Information on things you'll see in this video: The yarn I used in my finished blanket is Berroco Vintage, in colors: cream - 5104, purple - 5155, and petunia - 51105. I bought three hanks of each (but only used 2 of the cream), using size 7 US (4.5mm) needles. After machine washing and drying, my blanket is 40" square, with a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch.
The bulky yarn I used for demonstration is Lion Brand Hometown USA. I demonstrated using size 13 US (9mm) needles.
To change color with a clean color break, start your new color in the first row of a mitered corner. Instead of slipping the last stitch in the first row of the mitered corner, knit all the way across. Then work the rest of the corner as written.
To bind-off at the end of this project, BO normally (knit-wise) on the wrong side of the work.
