Learn to Knit Afghan :: Block Thirteen

Working with the Greek Cross Pattern

I don’t have any notes to share on this pattern. It was smooth going for me just following the same basic principles of mosaic knitting. As you can see in the pattern, especially in the yellow crosses, you don’t carry the off color for very long. The blue is added into the middle of the yellow crosses, and vice versa.

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.

    Yes, cooler weather is nicer for knitting, although these little squares do work well in warmer weather because you don’t have a huge blanket on your lap. Be sure to share if you do give it a go. 🙂
