take the guess work out of getting the right size
For those of us who get frustrated trying to figure
how many stitches to start with to get the right size.
In general this pattern uses a #7-#10 knitting needle, your choice, and a single strand of something close to worsted weight or very thin yarn doubled. This square is knitted only.
Cast on 3 stitches. Turn. *In the first stitch of each row only, knit in the front, knit in the back. Knit the
rest of the row. Turn. repeat from * until each of the two finished sides, (your piece will look like a triangle) measure 8". At that point, begin to decrease by knitting the first 2 stitches of each row together, knit the rest of the row. Repeat until there are 3 stitches left, bind off. (Change colors for diagonal stripes)
For Crochet. Chain 3. Insert hook into chain 1, pull up a loop. *(Trap that loop with your fingers) Chain one
in that loop. There should be two loops on your hook. Pull a loop through those 2 loops. begin process again by inserting hook into the loop you trapped, pull up a loop repeat from* (eventually you will know which loop to insert the hook into and won't have to mark it)
When the work equals 8 inches, turn. Hope this helps. S
