2017 August pattern of the Month

BLOCK STITCH SQUARE

pattern created by Jan Burton

*** 

 Red and white Block stitch squares by Bev Jeffery (AUS)

 

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.
