STACKED BOXES: BLOCK 4 OF 52 SQUARE PICKUP

STACKED BOXES stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

I really enjoyed designing this block 🙂 It’s fun to look at, but needs atention. The rows are very similar and, if you have some years of knitting under your belt, the pattern can trick you into believing that you don’t need to look at the instructions… 

Whaaaaat? You think I’m talking about my own experience? That I forgot to knit the center squares at the middle boxes the first time I made it?

You bet I did!!! 😳 So, be careful 😀

Love,

Cecilia

PS: do you have any suggestions for the design of the following blocks? I was thinking about a botanical theme, or maybe circles… I’d love to hear your ideas!!

DIAGONALS: BLOCK 3 OF 52 SQUARE PICKUP

DIAGONALS stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

Hello!

Today’s block looks easier than the previous two. It is important to insert a block with these characteristics from time to time when a blanket is put together to allow all other designs to stand out. Anyway, in my opinion, it is still a nice design 🙂 I also updated the format of the PDF file: from now on I’ll make only one PDF containing the row-by-row instructions in the first page and the chart in the second. A little less work for me!

For those who follow my alphabet dishcloth series: next weekend will bring the D and next week both E and F. I’m hurrying things up in the alphabet front to clear up my February work schedule. I’ll tell you why in a later post!

Another project that I am working on (if you follow me in Instagram or support me on Patreon you might already seen a sneak peek) is a pattern for hats with a textured heart as the star of the design. I’ll post it here on my blog next week, to give you time to knit some if you want to use them as Valentine’s gifts.

So, as you can see, I keep giving you excuses to buy more yarn… You’re welcome 😉

Thank you for being there!

Love,

Cecilia

I’m publishing this pattern a bit earlier as a surprise for our knitting friends who greet the sun earlier than others (in Australia, New Zealand, etc) So… good morning to you! Meanwhile, I’ll get back to the kitchen to prepare dinner for me and Tomi 😉

Hi there!! How are you? 

I saw a lot of squares number 1 in Ravelry and Instagram and I could not be happier with the amount of people who joined this project, from many countries of the world. Isn’t it wonderful? Also, did you see that our Ravelry group already has almost 600 members? Amazing!

For all those who did not follow my previous KAL of blocks (12 blocks for Xmas) I would like to remind you that I always leave at the end of each pattern, here on my blog, a PDF copy so you can download it and take it with you anywhere. Speaking of which: does anyone use the first file? I think that, unless someone objects, I’ll start to create just one file: the ROW-BY-ROW. What do you think? Please let me know. Thank you!

I’m going to publish square number 3 next Thursday. And so we began to advance the days a little bit, to arrive with plenty of time in December to assemble the blanket.

Have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Knitting!

Cecilia
