PATTERN 26: LITTLE HERRINGBONE

Hello!

Remember that when I published block 14 I told you I named it “BIG” Herringbone because I intended to make another one? Well, here it is!

Next week’s block will be called HONEYCOMB and is a special request of one of my patrons. I never tried to design a honeycomb stitch pattern for beginners and I thought it was a brilliant idea! 

Enjoy your knitting,

Ceci

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 26: LITTLE HERRINGBONE

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

I knitted 9 times the LITTLE HERRINGBONE pattern complete + row 1) again.

– Knit 4 rows.

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