Kuutio blanket knitting pattern
Kuutio is a blanket with a stitch pattern that looks like cubes. The stitch pattern consists of knit and purl stitches only, so it is very simple. The cool thing about the pattern is that it looks the same on the reverse side, too! The name kuutio is the Finnish word for cube.
