5th CK: Second Block of the Cascade Knitterati Afghan 2017

5th CK: Second Block of the Cascade Knitterati Afghan 2017

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.

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.

Check out my FB group Knit-Along Afghan and see how I progress.

God Bless & Knit On
