Knit With Me 2


Last week the first square was 7 x 3 flar rib.
Here is mine in a beautiful cobalt blue.

This week is sand stitch...


using multiples of 2, I've cast on 42 stitches...
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: *K1, P1*
Thats it! Very easy and it creates a scrumptious tactile square that looks good either side with the Easter break I should be able to get two of these squares done this week.


 

So here is my next square underway in scraps of Aarlon Royal in steel blue or slate blue???
It's a joy to knit with this wool and I know these scraps are going to make a beautiful heirloom piece.
Something for the generations.
Hope you can follow and knit with me or if not, the patterns are here for when you are looking for a project.

  1. Very nice. I don't now how to knit, I only crochet. Maybe something to learn in the future, all that counting scares me. lol

  3. Well I started knitting a cushion cover today in garter stitch. Something simple to start off with. I have done 8 rows and have already dropped two stitches! Woe is me! haha

  4. I actually started/finished a square in sand stitch the following day and it's a really fun stitch, now I'm back into the knitting mood.
