Swiss Cross Children's Blanket

By: Noeline Vermaak from ravelry.com

Swiss Cross Childrens Blanket

"This is a very easy pattern knitted in panels. You can make a bigger blanket simply by adding more panels. You will have to know how to cross your yarns at the back of your work when starting your cross. There will also be almost 300 loose ends to work away. The panels are sewn together with mattress stitch"

I was very surprised when the designer said there will be almost 300 loose ends to work in. I don't see why that would happen. You are working up the panel of crosses so why not just leave your white yarn in the center and carry it up, at least for each of the three sections of each cross, and carry the gray yarn behind the white.
