Block a Week Friday

Block 69
Twin Triangles

Knitting this was easy and fun, I made it my way because increasing in the way described in the book leave holes up the sides so if anyone would like to try it.

Cast on 3 sts
First row - inc in 1st and last st = 5 sts (right side)
Second row - Knit 
Third row - k1, inc in next st, k to last 2 sts, inc in next st, k1
Fourth row - Knit 
repeat last two rows until you have 43 sts then..
Knit one row
Change yarn colour
K1, k2tog, knit to last 3 sts, k2 tog, k1. (right side)
Knit one row
Repeat the last 2 rows until there are 3 sts remaining

This a great beginners block, also good for using up your yarn scraps, you could join your blocks to make all sorts of variations. 
I had to make four just for the fun of it...

I love that big blue square in the center :)

Curl - 0
size - 6"x 6"

  1. This block is wonderful. One could really have a lot of fun playing with oodles of different colours and seeing what fun arrangements one could come up with.

  2. Very nice!!
    Have a great weekend.:*

  3. Hi Linda, just catching up now that I am back, I have been reading, just not commenting. I loved what you did with your ends and flowers in your previous post, very creative indeed and a lovely display piece for your home too! You really are a clever lady aren't you. These squares look great as a four don't they, you could imagine a whole blanket made of them. xx

  4. This might be my favorite, it would make a great dishcloth.
