This classic quilt pattern symbolizes wedding rings, and, more romantically, the intertwining of lives in marriage. Despite its complex appearance, it is easy to knit, but like any quilt, requires a bit of sewing. It is composed of numerous small garter-stitch shapes - squares, ovals, and rectangles - that are sewn into sixteen circular (or part-circle) units, which in turn are joined together and trimmed with slip-stitch crochet.
Finished Size: About 58" (147.5 cm) square.
