    Yesh, Right! I don't HAVE any "Awards & Honors" - so nominate me for something - I want one of those badge things to put here. I don't care what it is - make up your own award and give it to me. I'm not picky.

GAAA – Barbara Selesnick Square

Posted by thedarwinexception on April 19, 2009

 

Square: Barbara Selesnick Square

Material Used: 1.25 skeins KnitPicks Wool of the Andes – Dove Gray; Size 7 Knitting Needles; Stitch Markers

Time to Completion: 5 Days

Notes: This square used less yarn than the two others I have completed – and it was really easy. There are 3 basic charts, but since the charts are not done in an even amount (one chart has 20 rows, one 4, the other 2), you will need a system for keeping track of which row you are working on which chart. I used the high tech method of writing the rows on a piece of paper and crossing them off. Also, since there are 11 distinct “sections” you are knitting, it’s extremely helpful to use stitch markers to mark off each section,. I don’t see how you could complete the square otherwise. Unless you have a really good eye and a really good memory as to where each section begins and ends. I really like the cables, in the shapes of intertwining hearts.

This square, on the “easy:” scale, is above the Belanger square, but still easy enough for a beginner.
