Last week, I finished a quick little project for my Harry Potter fiber community.
This is the Lucky 4-Leaf Afghan Block, a free pattern you can find on Ravelry…
The class prompt required students to choose one of the flags of a country participating in the Olympics and knit a project with all of that flag’s colors in it.
I selected Canada’s flag because I was, after all, born in Newfoundland and am a naturalized American citizen.
I used red and white Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn on size 5 needles. It only took me an evening and a half to knit this. I could have done it in one sitting, but by the time I started one night, it was already late.
I love this pattern because it’s knit from the center outward…in the round. It was much more interesting than knitting flat. If you’re a knitter or crocheter, you’ll understand what I mean.
I’m going to donate this block to charity because it’s nearly 12″ square, and I can’t see using it as a dishcloth. It would be lovely, if put together with a number of similar squares, as a blanket.
