BLOCK 3 of Blanket MKAL 2021

Do you recognize this block from the WIP photo I shared when advertising this MKAL? After knitting Block 2, you might even find it easy!

Enjoy the knitting 😊

BLOCK 3 of Blanket MKAL 2021

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

– With US 4 (3.5 mm) needles, knit 6 rows. In the last row, increase 4 sts distribuited (74 sts).

– Continue working as follows:

5 garter sts, BLOCK N°3 pattern over 64 sts, 5 garter sts.

Work 3 times the BLOCK N°3 pattern complete and then rows 1) to 17) again.

Knit 6 rows, decreasing 4 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.
