More Any Way You Slice It


For those interested, Denyse Schmidt's pattern is in her book Denyse Schmidt Quilts. I used her suggested fabric color palette and chose worsted weight yarn from Harrisville Designs. I blew up her template to 10" and used it for my blocks. They are knit point to point just like the ones from the Community Afghan in Handknit Holidays. I threw in short rows where needed. The Harrisville yarn blocks beautifully which is wonderful since my blocks are all wonky and different sizes.

thank you for sharing those links.

sorry to keep pestering you -- are you tracking the short rows and balancing them in another color, or will you just block them into squareness?

I do keep it balanced so that each edge has the same about of ridges. It took me a few blocks to figure out my favorite shape!

thank you -- i love the look, and have thought about trying for a gee's bend look in a knitted block but did not want to work too much on planning.

happy knitting, mrs. lear!

I love it. Love. It.

Are you just eyeballing to keep your short rows balanced?

How are you joining them?

Yes! I have a lot of questions!

The colors are amazing.
