The Square Friday blanket is complete and it was so much fun to knit. I designed nine different cable blocks. Each block consists of a garter stitch border and flanked by a simple cable to the main cable design.
The squares are knit with Lana Grande, a wonderfully soft and chunky yarn from Cascade yarn. I chose to use two colors from this line, Irish oatmeal and Beige. I also used US size 15 needles, which make the knitting go real quickly. The border for the afghan is a simple cable design. It is knit separately and sewn on to the completed afghan.
This was such a fun project. You can still join us on Fridays to create your own afghan or if you just want to try out one square for a pillow, you can do that as well. This is a free workshop on Fridays with the purchase of your yarn. Squared Friday will continue until March 4, so come and join us and knit a beautiful square for yourself.
