Triangles, Diamonds and Squares... Oh My!



Description: Join Grace in the journey of the Triangles, Diamonds and Squares... Oh My! Blanket pattern - in this class we will get started on one square and discuss possible modifications to the size of your squares. You will learn how to make the slip stitch along the side edge (which will make your seaming easier), as well as how to work the w&t (wrap and turn) in the pattern. Once we have completed the first half of our squares we will move onto the second half and learn how to change color as well as how to pick up the wraps and the double wraps around our stitches. When we have completed our square we can then discuss all the possibilities of the layouts for this versatile pattern.

Materials:
- Yarn: You will need a color A and a color B yarn, any gauge and yarn - light, clean colors are suggested, because fuzzy yarn or dark colors are harder to see
- Needles: Needle size should be appropriate for yarn. Bring either single point, 24" circular needles, or double point needles (if you bring dpns, make sure you have point protectors)
- Notions: Bring locking stitch markers (appropriate for needle size), a pen/pencil for note taking, a tape measure and a calculator.
- Pattern: Please purchase separately before class here
