This is one of the patterns I designed and shared during my “52 SQUARE PICKUP” Blanket KAL from 2019. It was project comprised of 56 different patterns (I ended up sharing more!), suitable to make a huge blanket. All blocks have the same characteristics (number of sts and rows, gauge/tension, materials, etc) and require a skill level of beginner (only knits and purls).
You can buy the entire pattern collection HERE (sneak peek 👇). As a “Beginner Stitch Patterns” book it could be a great resource for your future projects.
