TENSION

12 sts and 26 rows over garter stitch using 6mm needles to make a 10cm or 4in square

Blanket squares (make 3 pieces in each colourway as pertable).

Using yarn A, 6mm needles and the thumb method, cast on 3 sts and knit one row.

Note: the kfb increases below appear to be off centre by one stitch, but the instruction is correct - doing it this way will place the increased stitches either side of a central spine.

You may find it helpful to attach a removable stitch marker or piece of yarn to the right sides of the work to remind you which side to increase on as the right sides and wrong sides will only look slightly different from each other and it can be easy to lose track.

Row 1 (RS): Kfb, kfb, k1. 5 sts

Row 2 (and all WS rows): Knit.

Row 3: K1, kfb, kfb, k2. 7 sts

Row 5: K2, kfb, kfb, k3. 9 sts

Row 7: K3, kfb, kfb, k4.11 sts

Continue as set, increasing 2 sts at the central corner every RS row to 57 sts and ending with a WS row.

Change to yarn B.

Continue increasing every RS row as before to 65 sts, ending with a WS row.

Cast off purlwise on the RS, using the simple cast off. Weave in ends.
