Working with the Harlequin Pattern
This is a fun pattern to work up, especially with highly contrasting fabrics. It is using the same mosaic technique as the previous few blocks so there really isn’t anything new to learn here. In my notes I did highlight row 27 and jotted this in the margin, “Don’t forget row 27!” The pattern repeats itself in a predictable manner that is easy to memorize. Row 27 serves as the setup row between the diamonds and isn’t part of the diamond pattern so it is easy to forget.

Learn to Knit Afghan Project
This series covers several different knitting stitches using the Learn-to-Knit Afghan book by Barbara Walker. Whether you are a true beginner or an intermediate knitter, you can take your knitting to the next level working through the blocks in this book. About once a week I will be adding one new block to the blog with some of my notes. If you would like to knit along with us please feel free to leave your comments, questions, suggestions, and links to photos in the COMMENT section. You can also add a photo to our Flickr group or tag a Tweet with #WFAlearn2knit. If you are just joining us you might want to start with the introductory post.
