Good day to you all!!
The time has come to start our “12 Blocks for Xmas”, yay!!! 😀
If you missed the presentation for the Mystery KAL, you can find it here: Introduction.
I know some of you are a bit anxious (and so am I!) so, with no further ado, here’s the first block:
– CO 47 sts with US 8 (5 mm) needles.
|I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.|
– With US 7 (4.5 mm) needles, knit 3 rows.
|Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.|
– Continue working as follows:
3 garter sts, Stockinette Triangles 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 8 times the Stockinette Triangles Stitch pattern + rows 1 to 5.
– Knit 3 rows.
– Bind off with US 8 (5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.
(Over a multiple of 8 sts + 1)
Repeat instructions between brackets as many times as needed. For this block, repeat them a total of 5 times.
Row 1) k1, [p7, k1]
Row 2) [p2, k5, p1], p1
Row 3) k1, [k2, p3, k3]
Row 4) [p4, k1, p3], p1
Row 5) p1, [p3, k1, p4]
Row 6) [k3, p3, k2], k1
Row 7) p1, [p1, k5, p2]
Row 8) [k1, p7], k1
Did you like the first block? Did you find it hard/easy/boring/marvellous? 😉 Please, comment below, I’d love some feedback!!
I’ll post the next block on Monday, but I hope to see some photos of this one before 🙂
