BLOCK 10 of 12 blocks of Xmas knitted blanket – OhLaLana!

Block 10: Basket

Hi there! Today’s block features basket stitch, one of the most beautiful beginner patterns, in my opinion. I suddenly remembered one of the judges of the series “The Good Wife” 😉

We are nearing the end of our project! Within a week we will be planning different ways of joining squares. I hope to make it in time with my white ones (I’m very very behind).

See you soon!
