Block a Week Friday.

Block 92 
Chain Gang

Another slip stitch pattern which gives a fun effect. I do enjoy making the slip stitch blocks they are really easy to make and each one of them has turned out lovely so far. This one is a little bit longer than 6" but shouldn't be much of a problem when sewing into a blanket.

Rating - easy
Curl - 1
size - 6"x 6,1/4
ends - 4
