BLOCK 3 of Blanket MKAL 2022

Hello,

I have a couple of things to tell you before you start knitting today’s block:

1) Pay attention to the instructions to prevent confusion between S2KP and SK2P. But if you do confuse them, so what? The key here is to enjoy your knitting! 

2) If you didn’t follow my MKAL 2021, you might find my blog post on “How to make Hachi Twists” useful. I show there you how to work HTs without a cable needle, saving a lot of time 😊

Happy Friday!

Ceci

PS: if you want to share your progress in social media, please use the hashtag #ohlalanaMKAL2022. That helps me a lot and I love to see photos of your knitting!

Did you just find this MKAL?

Don’t worry, you can join at any time. You can follow it for free here during the KAL (see all general information for this MKAL for intermediate knitters HERE), or purchase your entry at any point either HERE in my website or in Ravelry HERE. At the moment you join, you’ll receive all the patterns shared so far.

Naturally, if you support me on Patreon, you’ll also receive all PDF files 🙂

Do you want more squares?

All blocks in my Blanket MKAL 2021 have the same size (stitches and rows) than the one I’ll be sharing this year. So, if you want to make a larger blanket, those squares will be perfect!
