This week's stitch pattern is from the website http://knitpurlstitches.com called Blocks 2. It is a simple combination of stockinette and reverse garter stitch and I really enjoyed knitting it.
I used U.S. size 7 knitting needles and worsted weight cotton yarn. The pattern is a multiple of 10 stitches plus 3 so for my swatch, I cast on 23 stitches. I repeated the 12 row pattern 2-3/4 times.
Rather than use this as an overall pattern, I think I'd like to use this as a single block with various other stitch blocks surrounding it. I think it will knit up as a nice pillow or blanket and possibly a nicely textured spa cloth.
