LTKA Square 3

Crafty Andy's picture

The Basket weave Square from the Barbara Walker book is a very interesting square and one of the most beautiful textures. I like Basket weave a lot and I find it to be very lovely in this cotton yarn. I am hreally enjoy this Square by Square excercise. I have made 3 Afghans in Crochet that hAve 63 different Squares each and I can tell you that the experience taught me a lot about how I crochet and about crochet and it's possibilities and potential. This Afghan shall do the same in Knitting, as it will take me through a journey of how I knit and how to play with texture, color and stitches. Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't had a look at her

I haven't had a look at her book yet, and I've seen a lot of the knitting books on the shelves at B & N, but with this afghan, are you pretty much choosing your own colours for this? That could be a lot of fun all by itself. Hmm...great job!

I think it is an all time

I think it is an all time favourite of most people. It really sets off colour well. Great knitting, Andy.

I've done several projects

I've done several projects in basketweave. It is fun to do and I get lots of compliments about how it looks from the folks who receive the final piece. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
