Pretty rose Arlene.

What a beautiful rose, Arlene.   I can almost smell the rose perfume.

Wow!! That's a BEAUTIFUL rose, Arlene, nestled there in its pretty green background square and resting sweetly in your garden....so lovely to look at.....you sure know how to bring us the 'complete experience'.  :))

Fondant, fiesta and raspberry pinks CoM

Wow, 5 superb squares, each beautifully made and the pinks compliment each other so well :)

 Superb entry Diane.    You display some inventive ideas and I love your use of colours in your knitting,  great every time!  Kx

Oh my word, Diane, you have used your pinks perfectly!  You have taken our CoM very seriously here, I see :))  I love how you've used stripes in the various patterns - mitre, diagonal, straight garter stitch.  Well done and gorgeous work. 

I have to ask about your 4-triangle squares. Do you have a pattern for these or did you just follow instructions from others here?  In any event, they are really lovely.  That magenta(?) pink really bounces the squares up a notch and they will all be so pretty in a blanket ... xo

Hello Gloria, thanks for your lovely comment. 

The large 16" middle square is the same as the yellow and gold one I did for the January CoM. The four triangles are the 1st half of a diagonal square, I just keep increasing until I get to roughly 76/77 stitches then cast off, very simple.

The regular 8" square same idea but only increase to around 37/38stitches befor casting off.  I use DK (double knit) yarn.xx

Diane, I'm intrigued by your method in making the 4-triangle square.  Perhaps I'm a bit thick (okay, a lot thick ... haha)  Are you making 4 'first halves' of the diagonal and stitching them together?  Is there a join-as-you-go method you're using?  Or have I completely lost the plot?

Sharon made a Tunisian crochet 4-triangle square this month.  It is a pattern that she and I had used a few years back, but she resurrected it and got us going again.  I made a couple and then thought I'd like to make a knitted version but couldn't find a pattern for it.  If you look on p. 12 of this discussion, you'll see what we came up with.  Between Sharon, Mili and me, we worked up a knitted version that seems to do very well, but you appear to do it differently.  I love seeing all kinds of different ways of achieving the same end :)) ... xo

Gloria, no you are not even a little bit thick, hahaha.  You're correct, I should have said I make four 1st halves of the triangles then sew them together once finished knitting all four.  I don't join them as I go, that would be in the 'too difficult box' for me!!!  I will take a look at p.12 as you suggest, sounds interesting and I might pick up a few tips. xx

Fabulous geometric squares, Diane, and sooo pink!

A great collection, Diane.   Love the colors, the designs, and the perfect stitching.
