Afghan square Project: Square 3
This is the
third in a series of 4 squares; you will note I have framed
- this with the
Irish moss the same as the diamond and the wheatear and
- cable square.
This is a great little stitch to use in any project, such as a
- a filler or panel
design you can even use it as an all over design.
This stitch is worked over 4 sts, over 4 rows, starting with a purl
- followed in the
next row with a k 1, p 1, k 1, all in the first st then p 3 sts
- together as 1.
Row 3 is a purl row, followed by a p 3 together as 1 st then
- k 1, p 1, k 1, in
the next st.
Tip: as the p 3 together makes the stitches rather tight on your
- try to work your
purl rows a bit on the loose side or you may find it difficult
- to do the p 3
together in the next row. Also as row 2 and 4 start by
between p 3 together and k 1, p 1, k 1, you may want to keep a
- piece of paper
and pencil handy so you can keep your place in the work.
