“12 Blocks for Xmas”
A new free knitting project to make a blanket in blocks.
Hi there, and welcome to my new free knitting project to make a blanket in blocks.
If you missed the introduction to this project, please visit this article to find out the details (materials, gauge and schedule).
I’ll be listing below each block for the blanket, as soon as I release it, with the link to its pattern. Just a simple way to get all the info for the “12 Blocks for Xmas” blanket organized in one place 🙂
Remember that every single block has a skill level of BEGINNER (only knits and purls), so everyone is welcome to join!!
You can upload photos of your results for each block to Ravelry or share them on Instagram (if you want to follow me, you can find me as @ohlalana.designs) with the tags #ohlalanadesigns #freeblanketofblocks #12blocksforXmas #freeblanketKAL I’d love to see them!!
If you have any doubt, write me in the comments box. And I will be happy to help.
You can find the pattern following the link. At the end ot the post, I included a PDF file with a printer-friendly version. Enjoy!
BLOCK 2: ROOF TILES
Follow the the link to read the pattern. PDF files at the end! The second has row-by-row intructions which include the edge sts, specially useful for beginners.
I had troubles naming this one. Any ideas?
Download links at the end, as usual 🙂
BLOCK 4: DIAMOND PADDING
One of my favorites 😊
BLOCK 5: CHAINS
This one has an elastic structure, and needs to be ironed or blocked. Be careful when measuring!
BLOCK 6: STAIRS
One of my absolute favorites. Rich in texture and with an elaborate appearance.
BLOCK 7: RHOMBI
Did you know that you can say “rhombuses” and “rhombi” as a plural for “rhombus”? I didn’t knew the second option, and love it As you can see, I easily find a lot of little things to be happy about…
BLOCK 8: PINWHEEL
Formerly known as “Windmills”, until someone remind me the right word!
BLOCK 9: POLKA DOTS
This one comes with a twist: you have to choose which side you like the most.
BLOCK 10: BASKET
One of the most beautiful beginner patterns, in my opinion.
BLOCK 11: DIAGONAL
Look carefully at the instructions for side sts, they are a bit different than the previous ones.
BLOCK 12: CHEVRON
A beautiful double chevron design for our last block 😊
