This block was a joy to knit. It is number 30 and is called the Twisted Lattice square. This stitch could have multiple applications.
The pattern is a multiple of 12 stitches plus 10.
Cast on 46 stitches.
There are 24 rows in the pattern repeats. Repeat rows 1-24 twice then rows 1-6 finishing with 54 rows before bind off.
As you can tell, this square is being blocked and is on its side rather than straight up and down. If you turn your head 90 degrees you can see it the way it is supposed to look!
At this stage in my knitting of this project I have decided to go back to where I left off...not being a tremendous fan of slipped-stitch patterns...and will then continue on as Barbara Walker wrote her book. I am sure I will learn many things if I just take them as they come.
Until this point I have used just four colors, two darks and two lights, as Mrs. Walker suggests. Another one of my "semi-sleep" nights was productive in that I have a good-sized bucket of Bartlettyarns already and have plenty of lights and darks, so from now on I will just use up what I have. With good fortune I will use up the whole bucket and can then justify going to Hilda Yates' Yarn Sale again this fall!
