Hi!

For the first time ever I have knitted and am sending 35 squares to be made up into one blanket. Rather than use up old bits of wool I have actually colour blended this time round. I have of course got loads left of these colours for the next project, the wrist warmers!

These are  tremendous Chris!!

Here's your photo of the blanket you made Chris - nicely done!!  I see that Karen has also posted it in Photos - thanks Karen.

That looks beautiful, Chris.

Broken Moss Stitch Pattern

This pattern works with any odd number of stitches. As a guide I used 8 ply yarn and 4mm Needles and started with 39 Stitches.

Row 1. Knit

Row 2. Purl

Row 3. K1, P1

Row 4. K1, P1

I apologise that my photo isn't the best, but I only have the camera in my phone and it isn't very good at doing close up photos.

Farrow Rib

Pattern is a multiple of 3 Stitches. As a guide, using 4mm needles and 8 ply yarn I needed 57 Stitches. I know this seems like a lot, but this rib stitch pulls in a lot.

Knit 2, Purl 1 repeat to end of row finishing with a Purl 1. Continue until 20 cm or 8 inches in size, cast off.

6 stitch Rib - From https://www.wrapwithlove.org/knitting-patterns/

Multiple of 6 plus 3 stitches. As a guide I used 4mm needles and 8 ply yarn and needed 45 Stitches.

Row 1. Knit 3, Purl 3

Row 2. Knit 1, Purl 1

Knit stitch striped square

Any number of stitches either odd or even will work for this pattern. As a guide with 4 mm Needles and 8 ply yarn I used 36 Stitches.

Row 1. Knit

Row 2. Purl

Row 3. Knit

Row 4. Purl

Row 5. Knit

Row 6. Knit

After last knit stripe repeat rows 1 to 4 casting off on the last purl row.

Wow Wendy....four GORGEOUS squares!! I would particularly like to try the first two. LOVING the colours you have used, too.  :))

Could you please tell me what brand are the first and last knitted from?

The purple yarn in the fist picture (broken moss) is a brand called 'Needles' I don't know where you would buy it though, a friend in QLD sent it to me as a gift, it actually isn't a very good yarn, it is very thin and I had to put more stitches on the needle than usual.

The blue in the bottom picture is 'Birch' yarn. I bought it at a discount store here called 'Best Buys'. It is old stock though and the newer 'Birch' yarn that is available at the Reject shop is thinner. The blue was a bit on the bulky side and I used fewer stitches with it than usual.

Thanks Wendy. Yes, we get Needles here. Looking at it again, I think I may have used this colour before, or else I have it somewhere in my stash. Your photo just makes it look prettier than I remember....hahaha.

Don't think I've seen that colour in the Birch before. I hate it when they bring out new stock that is thinner than previous, especially if I don't realize until I've already purchased it.

Loving these squares and the colours you used!They all look so neat!
