So a few days ago I started my version of the popular Ten-Stitch Blanket. The most notable differences in mine are: I’m using 20 stitches, AND not making a square blanket.
Earlier this morning I completed the Double Corner. After this every subsequent corner will just be a normal 2-segment corner. I began my cast-on at what is the right-most end in the picture, built my starting block to about 24 inches after turning the first corner, then changed color to make the 2nd corner. This red block will be the center-most section of the blanket, width-wise. I’ve already accepted that no matter how I do it, it may end up being slightly Escher-esque.
And that color change was not entirely random. On every round I expected to do a color change at that exact same place, just to mess with people’s heads. 🙂 It’ll make more sense when I am 4-5 trips around the perimeter.
I’m not sure about the given method of knitting onto the side edge — I read the instructions, did what was indicated and didn’t quite like it, so I’m doing my own thing. Following instructions has never been my strong suit in knitting. My prevailing guideline is “pick a method you like and then keep it consistent throughout the project.”
