New Pattern

Here is a picture of a a knit and purl "checkerboard" pattern I am starting on... 4 knit 4 purl repeat....I like the texture and pattern. I am using Cascade 220 yarn on number 5 needles. I am not sure if this will be a scarf or not. I am kind of getting sick of scarves. Any ideas....

CraftyAndy used this pattern this week for his afghan block. Maybe you can join in his afghan knitalong if you want to try something different. Nice to see you back!

I thought his basketweave was done in garter and stocking stitch though.....Of course I could be wrong.

I really like the checkerboard/basket weave pattern, I think I may use it for a baby blanket. Your color choice is beautiful, it would make a beautiful pillow.

I recommend choosing an object as a goal...I made a raglan sweater from the top down in the same yarn and needle size as a first object. There are great, simple patterns on the web, where you fill in the blanks with gauge, simple measurements, easily understood directions for the inexperienced and unsure knitter.

To relieve the pressure on myself, I saw this as an opportunity to learn, rather than a challenge to complete a work of artisan perfection. Once you see your work unfolding your fabric, shaped by your will never look back.

“There are those that do and those that don’t”
“Those that will and those that won’t”

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.
