WOW, Sharon, I'm amazed! Not that you created such a gorgeous, neat square, but that you were actually able to make sense of my instructions ... hahaha
I don't consider myself to be an experienced knitter - I wonder how many of us do? I just know how to knit and purl (well, what else is there?) and if it comes together in the end, then I've succeeded :)
I love how you managed to get your joining stitches neat. Perhaps I should have dug out my trusty old crochet hook (one of my essential knitting tools, btw!) and used your method. My joins are not the best, but they will hold and the cold air won't get in. I will remember your method for next time, though :)
I love how we're sharing patterns and ideas here. As Patricia mentioned earlier, what's new to one of us is often new to the rest of us, too! We're all learning together and in the end it's the children who will benefit from the new stitches and techniques we pick up from each other along the way :o) ... xo
Thanks for making up the pattern and sharing it with us. As my husband regularly says, (with tongue in cheek) "You have to be careful, or you'll learn something new every day!"
Another new pattern conquered, Sharon. Such a good feeling.
That's a BEAUTY, Sharon!! You gals are so clever!!
It takes me long enough to get a pj or diagonal made, so as the saying goes (for me) 'best to stick to what you know'..haha.
I was looking for a new pattern to try and came across this, which reminded me so much of a favourite jacket I used to wear when I was at work, that I had to give it a go. It's called Double Grit Stitch.
I then thought, if there's a double grit stitch, there's presumably also a single grit stitch, so here it is:
Very nifty looking squares! The top one makes me think of Dogs tooth fabric that was all the rage for jackets, skirts + trousers, and the second looks very dainty yet serviceable. They're both terrific finds + really nice ❤️
Yes! Karen, I thought that looked familiar. As you say, it is similar to a dog tooth (hounds tooth?) pattern. There is one of those in our Members' Patterns ... xo
Patricia, your double and single grit squares are beautiful! Good for you getting a new to you pattern done. You can cross that off your to-do list :o)
I think I'll add "read carefully" to my list. At first I thought you had called it a double "girl" stitch so you expected to find a double boy stitch ... haha ... xo
Both are beautiful. I like your color choices, too. But I especially like your thinking, double grit and single grit. Clever!
Congrats for completing some 'new to you' patterns, Patricia!!
Two beauties, though I have to say, the top one is a real STUNNER!!!
That’s a lovely pattern, Patricia. I had a similar jacket in navy and white.
