Last week my mom taught me and Meg a new knitting pattern.
It makes squares as if by magic.
They are knit all in a line with two decreases which magically turns it into squares.
You pick up stitches to start a new square so the squares don't have to be stitched together at the end.
This technique can be found in a pamphlet called The Rambling Rows Afghan, designed by Carol Anderson and Pat Penney, published by Cottage Creations.
I'm making only the large and small squares right now--a long term project. :-)
