This is a really cool technique from Rachael Rabbit with an easy way to make a tartan look in knitting. She uses a knitting machine but you could certainly knit the base by hand.
When she’s finished knitting, she drops a few stitches and weaves strands of yarn through to give it a woven tartan kind of look.
Very clever, and the size she demonstrates would be great for a baby blanket.
