Almost At The Finish Line

[IMPORTANT Side Note: If you have started Square 50 you will see that the rows are not correct. I have updated the post with the corrections. I have also taken out a line on Square 52 so that has also been updated in that post.] What a project this has been. I enjoyed going through the different pattern stitches and techniques myself. If it wasn't for my class I wouldn't have taken the time out to do this. And as you expressed it, you have also been experiencing the wide world of knitting and of what can be done through this square project. I'm glad that you also feel it has been a learning experience.

Here are Squares 56 and 57 coming down to the wire. Don't worry if you are not completed with all of your squares by the time we get together to seam them. You can bring what you have and learn how to seam and as some will be arranging their squares (including me)you can see what can be done when you are ready.

Keep the fun flowing and the learning juices going.

(Square 56) Double Cables

Co 30

K3 rows

Rows 1, 3, 5, 7: k3, p8, k8, p8, k3

Rows 2, 4, 6, 8: k11, p8, k11

Row 9: k3, p8, C2B (slip 2 to cable needle and hold in back of work, k2, k2 from cable needle – this gives you a right twist), C2F (slip 2 to cable needle and hold in front of work, k2, k2 from cable needle – this gives you a left twist), p8, k3 Repeat Rows 2 – 9 for 2 more repeats. Repeat Rows 2 – 8 once more For the next three rows: k11, p8, k11

(Notice: This is a different ending) Bind off in pattern the same as the last three rows (meaning bind off in the k11, p8, k11) weave in ends

(Square 57) Rib and straight knit 2

Co 26

K 3 rows

Row 1: k3, (k1, p1); rep across row to last three sts, k3

Row 2 & 3: k across row

Repeat Rows 1 – 3 until 5 ½”

(note: because of the nature of this stitch just end square with 2 rows of knit instead of 3 rows)

Bind off and weave in ends
