The Stack it Up Knit Blanket Pattern is made using some of the hottest yarn of the season, Caron Cakes, and displays the various colors beautifully. Since it is knit in individual squares and pieced together, you'll knit up a blanket with a really even display of all of the different tones in the yarn. This pattern is easy enough for inexperienced knitters to get the hang of, since the motifs are easy-to-memorize and there's no seaming involved as you simply pick up stitches from the edges of all other squares instead.
