So last Christmas my mum signed me up to ‘The Project of the Year’ as a gift. This project is run by the very friendly lady who owns the knitting and wool shop in my town. The project for this year was to make a big knitted blanket out of knitted squares. These squares are to be made in a variety of different sizes, patterns and colours. Once every month I go and pick up my package from the shop which contains all of the wool I will need for that month and instructions on the pattern. This is such a great scheme and since starting it I have learnt so many different techniques! Here are some of the squares I have completed so far…
To knit in Blackberry Stitch:
1st row: P
2nd row: K1, *(K1, P1, K1) into the next st, P3tog, rep from * to last st, K1
3rd row: P
4th row: K1, * P3tog, (K1, P1, K1) into the next st, rep from * to last st, K1
Rep rows 1-4 to form pattern.
Since Christmas I haven’t been able to do as much knitting as I would of liked as I have been doing my A-levels and got side-tracked by knitting lots of mittens! But I now back into it and making great progress! More to come soon 🙌💪🔥
