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.
PS: look carefully at the instructions for side sts, they are a bit different than the previous ones.
You just find this MKAL?
Don’t worry, you can start now! Look for more info in the following page: “12 Blocks for Xmas” A new free knitting project to make a blanket in blocks.

– CO 47 sts with US 8 (5 mm) needles.
– With US 7 (4.5 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.
– Continue working as follows:
3 garter sts, Diagonal Stitch over 42 sts, 2 garter sts (see the stitch glossary below) until you have a total length of 9.25’’ (23.5 cm).
I knitted 7 times the Diagonal stitch pattern complete + rows 1 to 3.
– Knit 4 rows.
