February hat and blanket squares

If you're not up for stranded colorwork, you can always do the color panel as a simple stripe. You will need machine washable worsted weight yarn - about 120 yards for the main color and 20 yards each of two other colors - and a 16 inch circular needle and double point needles in US 7 or 8 (4.5-5 mm). Here is the pattern (click to enlarge):  We also have 2 blanket squares for February. See this post  for details about the blanket square project and the patterns for squares 1 and 2.  SQUARE 3: CHECKS Cast on a multiple of 4 sts.  Rows 1 and 2: *(K2, P2), repeat from * to end.  Rows 3 and 4: *(P2, K2), repeat from * to end Repeat these 4 rows until piece measures 10 inches from cast on, ending with a row 2 or 4. Bind off all sts in pattern. SQUARE 4: GARTER STRIPES Cast on any number of stitches.  Rows 1-5: K acr
