|Miniature Mosiac, vertical|
Square eleven is Miniature Mosaic. Cast on 43 stitches. You will notice I did not read the directions and thus started out with stocking stitch and not garter stitch. Another error tolerated.
|Harlequin. Looks better vertically placed.|
Square twelve is Harlequin and one of my favorites. At least I love the way it looks. Cast on 43 stitches.
Square thirteen is Greek Cross, with 43 stitches cast on.
At this point I rather wearied of the mosaic patterns and decided to go to the end of the book and start back.
Square sixty-one looked like fun so I started there. It is called Parquet Squares and you learn to pick up stitches along garter stitch ridges. Fun. Easy. Attractive block. I could knit a lot of these. Cast on 21 stitches.
This last square having been restful, I decided to go to square sixty-three, the Increasing Seamless Square. It is always a good idea to read the directions thoroughly before starting a new pattern! Cast on 4 stitches. You shift from double-pointed needles to a 16-inch circular needle, also a bit of a learning curve.

Having completed square sixty-three, I decided to return to the mosaics and carry on from there in an orderly fashion. We shall see how long that lasts!
