Don't Be A Square, Learn to Knit, Afghan Knit-Along, Block Two, Do The Wave. - Tuesday

Don't Be  A Square, Learn to Knit, Afghan Knit-Along, Block Two, Do The Wave.

If you know how to knit and purl but are ready for the next step this KAL (Knit-Along) is for you. We will be joining Universal Yarn and Amy Gunderson for this KAL and you will have the added benefit of hands on help from Heidi. If you missed block one - no worries, we will help you catch up.

It’s knitalong time again! Amy Gunderson is guiding us through the Don’t Be A Square Afghan Knitalong. Starting in March, we’ll be featuring a square every other week in Uptown Worsted. The squares will showcase a variety of techniques like cabling, intarsia, and unique textures.
The color changes in this block are worked using the intarsia method. Only a single color is held at any given time. When it’s time to switch to a different color in the middle row, put a single twist in the yarns to avoid holes from forming in the knitting.
