BLOCK 8 of Blanket MKAL 2021

On Block 8 of this year’s project I introduce a very nice technique I call the DOUBLE LOOP. I created a step-by-step photo guide to show it in detail (you can find it HERE) but let me tell you 2 reasons why I love those double loops:

  • they’re very easy to make
  • you end up with an element that looks very similar to a cable but it’s faster to do, and… no cable needle needed! Perfect for commuter knitters 😂

You’ll also find in this block the Front version of the Hachi Twist. If you don’t remember how to make it, take a look at this post.

Ok, let’s go the pattern for…

Thanks for joining 🙌

And very happy knitting!
