PATTERN 21: BROKEN

Hello! I case you wondered, I was off grid the last week because my computer decided to take a vacation 😉 Now that it’s fixed and ready to work, I have 2 blocks to share…

For this one (block 21) I have to versions for you. I started knitting the blue one, but as days passed (and I missed my computer) I began to believe it looks too similar to “growing leaves”… What do you think? Or is just me?

Anyway, I decided to give the idea another try and shifted the broken lines a bit more to obtain the purple square.

I hope you enjoy knitting one, the other, or both!

Talk to you soon 🙂

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?

BLOCK 21A: BROKEN A

BROKEN A square

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

I knitted 6 times the BROKEN A 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.
