GIRAFFE knitting pattern 🦒 – BLOCK 27 of Beginner Blanket MKAL 2020!
Hi! How are you?
I have two patterns pending for you: GIRAFFE 🦒 and BICYCLE 🚲 (out tomorrow). And then a very easy and quick baby sweater!
Take care and happy knitting,
If you have any doubt or question, please leave your comment below.
THE ENTIRE PATTERN (written and charted) IS BELOW.
- CO: cast on
- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side
- st: stitch
- k: knit
- p: purl
– 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, GIRAFFE knitting pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts (55 rows).
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.
