This month we are going to complete 2 sections of the Janet’s Garden Blanket. Both sections feature post stitches, which you can learn more about HERE. The first section gives a knit look, and the second makes a nifty zig-zag. It will be important to block each of these sections to get a nice look on your finished blanket.

Find all the details and additional links about Janet’s CAL HERE.
