PATTERN 31: SMALL GARTER DIAGONAL

Let’s get back to our 52 Square Pickup project!

To ease the “back to knitting”, this one has alternate “k all sts” rows 😛
Oh, and I also want to ask for your help. Block 32 will be out next Tuesday and I have no idea what to name it 😕 My inspiration came from one of my plant pots and I’ll be sharing a photo of both (knitted square and plant pot) in a bit. I’d love to hear your ideas :idea:!
Happy Friday, and happy knitting!
PS: I’ll be posting the following blocks in a “2 per week” basis until we get back on schedule. I’m sorry for the inconvenience! If you’re part of my Ravelry group you already know this, but just in case I wanted to share it here also. 😀

If you want to add this block to your Ravelry library, click here.

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”.

You’re also welcome to join our Ravelry group.


BLOCK 31: SMALL GARTER DIAGONAL

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

I knitted 6 times the SMALL GARTER DIAGONAL pattern complete + rows 1) to 7) again.

– Knit 4 rows.

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