As I explained in my post for BLOCK 4 of “12 blocks of Xmas” KAL, “BREATHE” is an extra block pattern, just in case you need it to replace any of the others!
BREATHE: an extra block pattern
- CO: cast on
- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side

– CO 47 sts with US 8 (5 mm) needles.
– With US 7 (4.5 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.
– Work 5 rows in Stockinette Stitch with 3 garter sts at each side.
– Knit 1 row.
– Continue working as follows:
3 garter sts, Breathe Stitch over 41 sts, 3 garter sts (see the stitch glossary below) until you have a total length of 9.25’’ (23.5 cm).
I knitted 7 times the Breathe pattern complete + rows 1) to 5).

Um. This Breathe Block (the Row by Row PDF) has the Diamond Padding instructions from Block 4 at the top. That’s a tiny bit confusing.
Ouch! I may have uploaded an earlier version instead of the final… I check it right now and get back to you.
Thank you! <3
Corrected! Luckily that was the only mistake, I had forgotten to change the name of the pattern on that line.
Thank you for letting me know!
Welcome. Thanks again! Really enjoying this project! <3
