I am currently creating a blanket using the herringbone stitch. I have created the blanket by knitting squares with alternating colors (black and grey)
I started by casting on 74 sts and working in Herringbone stitch for approximately 64 rows. Then I alternate to the opposing color and work this way to create an additional 7 squares.
My plan was to create 7 strips like the above and then seam the sides of them using maybe the mattress stitch. But I realized it would be faster to knit TWO, 74 inch blocks, on my needles vs one strip at a time, thus making the process faster and most importantly, NO SEAMING!!!
I found a YouTube video explaining the two color cast on and thought using that method would work perfectly.
Here’s a link to the video: https://youtu.be/qakFp5pzVXc
Unfortunately as you can see from the picture attached…the only row that is seamless is the cast on row. I WILL admit that after finishing the cast on row the tail for the black section was on the other end other work…so I cut the tail and reconnected it…which I know is why it’s not seamless…but I’m sure there’s a way to so this.
