BLOCK 11 of Blanket MKAL 2021

BLOCK 11 of Blanket MKAL 2021, ohlalana, blanket kal

In this block you will find some things already presented in previous blocks, like LOOP and Hachi Twists, but also something new: BOBBLES.
The BOBBLES worked here are different from the popcorns you might have worked in my Popcorn hat: they are smaller and don’t need to be worked over several rows. But, make sure to read the instructions carefully! If you don’t “close” the bobble in the following row you’ll end up with more stitches than you should 😉
Alternatively, you can decide not to work the bobbles and just knit that stitch as shown in the following photo. Or make some here and there… It’s up to you!

SPOILER ALERT at the end:

Do you want to see what’s coming next week? At the end of this post, in the very last photo, you can see the next block peeking out in the background 👋 If you don’t want to see it, stop scrolling down when you reach my “SPOILER BELOW” sign there.

Thanks for joining 🙌

And very happy knitting!

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • BO: bind off
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • st: stitch
  • k: knit
  • p: purl
  • yo: yarn over
  • k3tog: knit 3 sts together
  • SK2P / sl1, k2tog, psso: slip 1 st as if to knit, k2tog, pass the slipped st over
  • LOOP / loop, k, yo, k: with the right hand needle, pick the 3rd st on left hand needle, pass it over sts 1 and 2, and drop it; k, yo, k.
  • 1F, k2, k1F: slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in front, k next 2 sts, k1 sts from cable needle.
  • 1B, k3, p1B: slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in back, k next 3 sts, p1 from cable needle.
  • 3F, p1, k3F: slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, p next st, k3 from cable needle.
  • 3F, k3, p1, k3F: slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k next 3 sts, p1, k3 sts from cable needle.
  • 4B, k3, (p1, k3)B: slip 4 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k next 3 sts, (p1, k3) from cable needle.
  • BOBBLE: insert RN into the stitch knit-wise and knit without releasing it; move yarn to front and purl the same stitch without relasing; move yarn back and knit the same st without releasing; move yarn to front, purl the same stitch and release. You will have now 4 sts in your right hand needle where it should be one. To avoid the increase and close the bubble DO NOT FORGET to purl all 4 sts together in the next row.
  • Front HT: from the front, pick and knit the second st with your right needle, without removing it from the left needle. Knit the first st and slip both off your left needle.
  • Back HT: from the back, pick and knit the second st with your right needle, without removing it from the left needle. Knit the first st and slip both off your left needle.
  • Front HT with p stitch: from the front, pick and knit the second st with your right needle, without removing it from the left needle. PURL the first st and slip both off your left needle.
  • Back HT with p stitch: from the back, pick and PURL the second st with your right needle, without removing it from the left needle. Knit the first st and slip both off your left needle.

    You can see a step-by-step photo guide of the HACHI TWISTS (HT) in my blog HERE.

INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 70 sts with US 6 (4 mm) needles.

– With US 4 (3.5 mm) needles, knit 6 rows. In the last row, increase 3 sts distribuited (73 sts).

– Continue working as follows:

5 garter sts, BLOCK N°11 pattern over 63 sts, 5 garter sts.

Work 1 time the BLOCK N°11 pattern complete and then rows 1) to 41) again (41 included).

Knit 6 rows, decreasing 3 sts in the first row to return to a total stitch count of 70.

– Bind off with US 6 (4 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Block your square to its final measures. You can read my post on blocking if you need more info.

To block each square to the same final measures (I did it to 11”) it’s really key for this project. 

Not blocked VS. blocked.
