BLOCK 2 of Blanket MKAL 2021

As in Block 1, I integrated the instructions (row-by-row and charted) of all different “stitch patterns” or “panels” within the square.

Let me say something: I love this block! I love the texture and I think it has the exact balance between cables and japanese stitches.

I hope you like it too! 😊

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.

Or better still: keep scrolling down with your eyes closed and say “hello” in the comments section!

And so it begins.

Thanks for joining 🙌

And very happy knitting!

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°2 pattern over 63 sts, 5 garter sts.

Work 2 times the BLOCK N°2 pattern complete and then row 1) again, with the
following modification: work the middle 9 sts (the ones NOT painted in grey
in the chart) as p1, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, skp, p1.

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.

  2. Dear Cecilia, is it possible that the chart is missing the [3B, k2, (p1,k2)B] in the 1st and 13th row? Am I correct in assuming that the WRITTEN instructions are the correct ones? Thanks in advance! <3

    • oh, you’re so right! What is wrong with me and my charts? 😰

    • Chart update done! Thank you for reporting my mistake, xo

  3. Will you be issuing a corrected chart with the missing cable cross?

    • Hello. I just updated the post for Block 3 to correct my mistake. I’m sorry for the delay!
