PATTERN 28: BOXES AND LINES

You need to pay attention when knitting this one. And enjoy the occasional “k all sts” or “p all sts” rows 🙂 Happy knitting!

If you want to add this block to your Ravelry library, click here.

Remember that, in case you need more patterns to add to this project, I adapted all patterns from my “12 Blocks for Xmas” blanket to the same number of stitches and rows than the “52 Square Pickup” ones. You can find them HERE.

You just find this MKAL?

Don’t worry, you can start now! Look for more info in the following page: 52-SQUARE PICKUP: An all year round KAL”.

UPDATE February 2020

The entire pattern is below.

You can also find this pattern in my collection “52 SQUARE PICKUP: Patterns 21 to 40” HERE. As a “Beginner Stitch Patterns” mini book it could be a great resource for your future projects.

The high quality PDF file includes:

  • gauge/tension info and materials
  • written instructions
  • charted instructions
  • row-by-row CONTROL TABLE for each block: specially prepared for novice knitters, with integrated instructions for the block pattern AND edge stitches, to avoid confusion. You can use the table cells to check each row as you finish it, and there is a column for every repeat of the pattern you need to make according to the instructions. A great resource to print and check your progress as you knit.

BLOCK 28: BOXES AND LINES

BOXES AND LINES stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket BOXES AND LINES knitting pattern OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • st: stitch
  • k: knit
  • p: purl

INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.

– Continue working as follows:

4 garter sts, BOXES AND LINES pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts​ until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).

I knitted 3 times the BOXES AND LINES pattern complete + rows 1) to 7) again.

– Knit 4 rows.

– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
