“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!!

If you have any doubt, write me in the comments box. And I will be happy to help.

XO,

Cecilia

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…
