Block a Week Friday

Block 26
Sextet



Worked from a chart and made with the intarsia method.  I found the chart too small and found it easier to count and make a note of the number stitches and rows needed for each colour, then it was very easy and straightforward.  It would be fun to make a blanket with this method randomly changing colours, it would be a great stash-buster too.

  9. This block looks very cool! But it does looks hard to change the colors, or is it not? I think a blanket would look awesome :-)
