Diagonal stitch knitting pattern BLOCK 11 of 12 blocks Xmas knitted blanket OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

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.

The entire pattern is below.

You can now purchase the the entire “12 Blocks for Xmas” pattern collection (12 different patterns) HERE or in my ETSY shop HERE. The high quality PDF file includes:

  • gauge/tension info and materials
  • written instructions
  • charted instructions
  • row-by-row CONTROL TABLE: specially prepared for novice knitters, with integrated instructions for the block pattern AND edge stitches, to avoid confusion. You can use the table cells to check each row as you finish it, and there is a column for every repeat of the pattern you need to make according to the instructions. A great resource to print and check your progress as you knit.

  1. Things happen. So glad to see it this morning though. Isn’t it silly how excited we get about things like this? Thank you for all of your hard work and these free patterns. I’ve been posting photos of the blocks on my blog as I finish them if you’re interested in seeing them. Blessings, Betsy

    • Thank you, Betsy!! I’ll make sure to check your blog 🙂

  2. I just began knitting block 7. I believe you should knit rows 1-12 five times, like instructed but instead of knitting rows 1-3 once more, it should be knit rows 1-7. 12 x 5 = 60 + 7 = 67. Then add your beginning rows (4) and ending rows (4) will give you a total of 75.

    Fore all of my previous blocks (1-10), I have always ended up with a total of 75 rows total.
