FENCES Blanket Block

FENCES Blanket Block

This pattern corresponds to Block 38 of my 52 Square Pickup KAL 🙂

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”.

BLOCK 38: FENCES Blanket Block

FENCES stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket FENCES 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, FENCES pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts​ until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).

I knitted 3 times the FENCES 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.

  1. Oh my. I like this pattern, too. I may not live long enough to knit everything that I want. And I recognize the Oxalis plant in the picture, too. I have one in my kitchen!!!

    • Hi Jan! Thank you 🙂 I love my purple Oxalis triangularis. Is not a very common plant here in Argentina (it’s virtually impossible to find), but I was able to find a someone who sells the bulbs. Therefore, this year I decided to buy some and experiment. I thought some bulbs will not prosper and planted them in 4 different containers. They all grew and now I have a little Oxalis jungle in my windowsill, haha!
