Stitch Pattern Sunday – Block Challenge #5

It’s Sunday! It’s time again for a Block Challenge! If you completed your Stockinette Square in last week’s challenge (you can still use last week’s block as a block for your blanket if you like OR just count it as a gauge swatch), you’re ready to move onto this week’s challenge. This week is a chart challenge! This challenge is a challenge for me also. I wanted a few Fair Isle or Intarsia blocks. Now, here’s the thing. Since we’re knitting flat blocks, there will be colorwork while purling. I know, I KNOW! I’m not crazy about it either! BUT. I REALLY want a few of these colorwork blocks in my afghan! So, after I got my Stockinette Block completed, I got on Stitch Fiddle and created this chart using my column/ row counts  (30×38).

If you don’t want to design your own chart, feel free to use this chart (or another that you find). If you don’t want to do colorwork, you could also purl (on the right side/knit on the wrong side) The blue spaces on the chart (you’d end up with something like this). I can’t wait to see everyone’s blocks from this challenge!

Happy Knitting!
