I have been knitting this for months and months. I used up all my oddments of 4 ply, left over from knitting mittens and an odd pair of socks. I bought a few extra balls and luckily found a stash in a charity shop. It is a mitred square pattern where you pick up stitches from the previous square so no tedious stitching together of patches. You decrease down the middle of the row. Difficult to explain but plenty of instructions on u-tube etc. It is so comforting to knit.
I will use it as a studio blanket over my knees or round my shoulders on those chilly days. Like today. Woke up to snow! Very early for snow here. Turned very slushy now. We Brits love to talk about our weather. How can anyone deny climate change? As Beth would say-'don't get me started'
