I’ve two more blanket squares to show you…
Ladder pattern square
I’ve done this pattern before, but it turned out a bit neater this time. I remember getting into a right mess when I did it before, usually because I would forget what row I was on, and I wasn’t quite sure of the difference between a knit and a purl. It’s funny to think how that’s all clicked now and I wonder why I ever found it tricky?
This week’s square in the magazine was just another reverse stocking stitch square… boring… so I decided to look up a different pattern from one of my books. This one, called Sisal, caught my eye as being a bit different.
I think I’ve pretty much sussed the blocking of these squares too – just the right amount of steam to soften them up but not to make them go floppy.
