Learn to Knit Afghan :: Block Ten

block-ten-diagonal-chainWorking with the Diagonal Chain Pattern

The diagonal chain is another fun mosaic pattern. The main tip I want to share is be sure to slip as if to purl unless a pattern says otherwise. This is true for all the mosaic patterns.

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.

Getting Started Knitting

If you are completely new to knitting you can learn the basics of getting starting with our Newbie Knitting series. Once  you have tackled the first few lessons there, you will be ready to begin your afghan.
