i recently saw a WIP on this site of a beautiful sampler afghan, which gave me an Idea. i’d like to try to make one of my own, but use a bunch of stitch patterns of my choice. this means that i’d be knitting without a pattern, which often indicates impending disaster in my world.
i haven’t really thought the whole idea through yet, but i’m thinking about making twelve or sixteen blocks of different patterns (and maybe two or three colors). i’ve got a book of different stitch patterns and many of them say things like, “multiple of five” or “multiple of 4+2.” if i want the blocks to all be the same size, do i need to pick stitch patterns that will end up with the same number of stitches on each square or do i just need to make sure that they measure the same? (does that make sense?)
best friday night knitting to all,
