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'. :))
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.
