DECEMBER PATTERN OF THE MONTH
Block Stitch Square Knit pattern by Jan Burton (UK)
This pattern creates a great, double thickness square in two colours, without all the confusion that you get with normal fair-isle. This stitch pattern is very useful when trying to use a soft, "unstable" yarn such as chenille or thick short eyelash, which can easily stretch out of shape used on its own. Using the soft yarn as the background yarn, and a plain yarn for the foreground, this pattern will produce much more stable fabric suitable for blanket squares.
Have a look through our KAS Pattern Book where other patterns are available. Please try as many as you like.
Bev has gathered us all together and passed out the list for next year's monthly themes. What a fabulous lineup it is! Better check the themes list so you can tell Santa what yarn you want for Christmas! But ... be sure to be good so that when Santa checks his lists, you're on the right one!
