BLOCK 11 of 12 blocks of Xmas knitted blanket – OhLaLana!

BLOCK 11 of 12 blocks of Xmas knitted blanket – OhLaLana!

I knew I was going to be out of my home yesterday all day. For that reason, I wrote the post on Wednesday and I had left it programmed so that it would be published on Thursday at 10 am. Clearly, I did something wrong… I’m sorry!!

Block 11: Diagonal

Hello!! I leave you below the pattern for our 11th block. Just one more to go!!! Next week, after our last Monday’s block, we’ll discuss 3 different ways to join the squares. 

Happy knitting!

Cecilia

PS: look carefully at the instructions for side sts, they are a bit different than the previous ones.
