Squares

I have been involved in knitting squares for various blankets recently, usually a group effort to give a warm hug to someone who is unwell or having a tough time.

It gave me an excuse to try out some different stitch patterns.  No matter what the samples look like in photos from stitch dictionaries they take on a new look when you actually knit them up.

Then I had an idea.  I have a notebook full of pattern ideas and they rarely make it into a knitted version, but this one worked out better than I thought:

Four Cables

An idea, knitted up that actually worked!  I may need to lie down 🙂

    Wow! That looks amazing! Well done. I’ve knitted many a blanket, trying out different patterns but never thought of any like that; it looks so great. I can’t wait to have a go at one like it!

  2. Oh that’s lovely! You should try your ideas out more often!x
