Like Ginny from small things, two of my favorite things are reading and making things. That is why I love yarn along. I love to see what other people are reading and making and if you get a moment, join in.This week I have been reading Worlds Best Origami by Nick Robertson. I have always admired Origami but have never been able to follow it. Meanwhile I had the pleasure this week of teaching a young woman how to knit, starting with these squares. They really are quite and easy to knit and also the student gets to practice their casting on and off without being too aware of it.You can make squares into so many things and she is going for a crazy quilt, which has many different types of yarns and colors. I have included the pattern for those of you unfamiliar with it! Enjoy!
To begin, make one stitch.
Row 1. Increase 1 stitch at the beginning of next row. Row 2. repeat row 1. until your square is half the size you want it to be.
Next row. Knit the first two stitches together at the beginning of each row until have one stitch left.
To finish off, cut yarn and draw through loop. Now you have a very versatile knitted square.
