Block 2 Beginner MKAL 2022

Block 2 of Beginner MKAL 2022

Hi there,

Blocking is key for this one because it has a texture that pulls strongly inwards. You’ll see what I mean as you knit 😉

Happy Tuesday!

Ceci

Please note that I’ll be sharing each block of this MKAL in 2 sizes: “regular” (the one I intended for this year’s blanket squares) and “52SP size” for those of you wanting to increase your 52 Square Pickup collection. Make sure to follow the right instructions for your chosen size 😊

You can read the general information (materials, gauge, FAQ, etc.) for this Blanket MKAL for beginner knitters HERE.

Do you want to share your progress in social media? Please use the hashtag #ohlalanaMKAL2022. I love to see photos of your knitting!

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments section at the end.

Thanks for joining 🙌

And very happy knitting!
