What you need to know

Step it up a gear with part two of the Let’s Knit Together five-part knitalong. Square Three uses reverse stocking stitch stripes to clever effect - just remember to keep a note of which side is the right side! Square Four is a little more advanced, but follow the instructions and see a raised circle design appear before your eyes!

"Due to the meditative qualities of its gentle repeating textures, this blanket is guaranteed to make you more relaxed as you knit"

Stocking stitch alternates a row of knit stitches with a row of purl stitches. This creates a knitted fabric that is smooth on the right side (with purl stitches forming the bumpy wrong side).
