Purl Soho is a family-owned shop dedicated to serving fibre artists of every ilk, from knitters and crocheters to quilters and embroiderers. The New York City store is currently closed due to Covid-19, but the online store remains open to all globally. As well as stocking other brands, the store sells Purl Soho brand yarns, fabrics, kits, and notions, only available at Purl Soho and purlsoho.com. The site is also a valuable source for original projects and patterns. Located under the "Create" menu, they regularly share new and often free patterns created by their own team of talented designers (with a guest designer thrown into the mix every now and then). As the seasons turn, Purl Soho has suggested a free pattern for us that celebrates both colour and construction, a perfect project for autumn and winter.
Our gloriously artful Mitered Corner Blanket is a masterpiece in construction, colour, and design. This next-level knitting project is as close as you can get to painting with yarn, nearly calling for a signature in the corner. Its watercolour-y wonders run deep, with 192 squares that require absolutely no sewing. You just knit each square from corner to corner and pick up stitches along one or two sides of adjoining squares to continue with the next one, gradually gliding from one combo of colours to another.
All these beautiful in-between shades and gradations are possible by using our Linen Quill doubled. Get all the yarn you need with our Mitered Corner Blanket Bundle, available in two palettes: Warm and Cool. Both versions ripple through colour with stunning beauty: a sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic flow, from deep saturation to pale expanse, back to rich concentration, transformed. Both palettes are available in Small and Large Throw sizes. Either way, the 192-square construction is the same, but for the Small Throw each square is 3 x 3 inches, and for the Large Throw each one is 4 x 4. In any size or colour, this is the perfect get-involved winter project, a work of art to really immerse yourself in, as legit for hanging on the wall as it is for hanging on the couch!
