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!

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

  1. 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.
