Almost Finished Block 2
This is a lovely little design working with 4 yarn colours creating a squirrel, leaf & acorn pattern. On the second set of squirrels I had to unravel them because some how I got my colour work out of line and tried to fix as I went which didn’t turn out so well. Concerning the needle size I will be sticking with the 4.5 mm needles with all blocks. If the blocks are slightly off I’ll just create a border to make up the difference.
Yarn: is Bernat Satin, medium (4), approximately 200 yds or 182 m.
- Lavender (04309)
- Teal (04203)
- Aqua (04201)
- Fern (04222)
Gauge: For my knitting was approx. (19 st x 20 rows) = 4×4 in square.
Needle: I used 4.5 mm-US 7, but each designer used either 4 mm to 5mm needles sizes for their block.
The four yarns I used for Block 2
This is the first time I have ever attempted an afghan and so far it’s going well, mind you a bit slow. I’m afraid that is my fault, too many projects on the go. When I finish this square I’ll post a picture on the next CK post. So far this square is 11 inches wide, this is a bit off from my first square, 2 inches to be exact. I’m going to work a garter stitch border and attempt a mitered corner, I’ll let you know how that goes. I have 28 more block to knit.
