What you need to know

The next two squares in Part 4 of our homely knitalong show you how to conjure up an intricate design in knit and purl stitches, then lacy eyelets and slipped stitches are strategically combined to create an all-over design of delicate feathers – just keep an eye on your pattern and stitch count after every row.

Designer

“The blanket is inspired by the idea of nurturing and I thought a birdhouse was a good way to illustrate this. It works for both boys and girls, and hints at the bond between mother and child”

How to: work eyelets (yfwd/yrn)

Eyelets are useful in creating holes for edgings, drawstrings and lace patterns. The yarn forward (yfwd) is used between two knit stitches, and a yarn round needle (yrn) between two purl stitches.
