Krystal's Square 11

Here is my square 11. This was done on size 5 needles, and came out to the right width with the given number of stitches to cast on. I only did 70-something rows, though - not the 82 it called for.

Halfway through I realized that it doesn't specify how to slip you stitches, and I was slipping "purl-wise" on both right and wrong sides. Then I switched to slipping "knit-wise" on the right and "purl-wise" on the wrong sides. I don't think it looks much different, though.

(It was easier for some reason)

We're all a little tired of the mosaics, so we're going to jump to S17 and then come back to S12. However, by the looks of it, the slip stitch ones don't appear to be much different than the mosaics.

Here is my square 11 and Im afraid I did it wrong. I purled the rows instead of knitting them but I was already 12 rows into it and wasnt going to start again. It still looks the same but it doesnt if you know what I mean.

Oh and I only did 70 rows instead of the 82 rows this pattern called for.

Tracy's square 11

I finished this square this afternoon and I like this mosaic pattern the best so far.

Tracy's square 10

Not too bad to make, the pattern was sort of easy to work out without having to read every row.

Sherri's Square 11

I think this pattern looks like little penguins.

Heather's Square 6

I finished square 6. I thought it would take me months but after the first 2 rows it got easier. Still lots of mistakes in it. :( I kept changing my stitches halfway through *sigh*

Karen's square 10

Here is my square 10. I forgot to post it the other day... Are we on to 11 now??

Cindy's Square 10

Here is my square 10. I made a mistake close to the beginning, but didn't notice it until I was nearly finished, because of how much this block curls. I might try to fix it using duplicate stitch embroidery, but I will likely just let it be. In the finished afghan, I doubt it will be very noticable.

Krystal's Square 10

Yes, I know there's a mistake in there. I'm not very good at "unknitting" and I didn't see my mistake for a couple rows later.

It'll just have to stay there.

I really don't like these mosaics. I can't say why, I"m just tired of them and they're not very impressive when looking at them in "real life".

I haven't even started square 11!!

Pauline Square 10

My square 10. Nice pattern. Finally got the picture to work.

Heather's Square 4

I liked this one once I figured out where I was going wrong with the pattern :) I still managed to make a mistake in it but since I don't know how to frog back just a few rows I wasn't going to frog the whole thing for it.

Heather's Square 5

I like this one but the counting was tough. I made a couple mistakes in it. I kept getting lost on where I was in my count.

Donna's Square 10

Here is my square 10. It was really easy to do. The pattern made it easy to remember where I was too. The only problem I had with this one is it curled as bad as square 9 did. I had to shorten the amount of stitches on it and I think I did a few less rows too.

Sherri's Square 10

I like the garter slipped mosaics better than the knitted ones.

Wendy's Square 10

Here is my square 10, very easy to do.

Krystal's Square 9

Here is my square 9 in TLC country blue and RHSS buff. Reminds me of something from the 70's.

I don't care for this technique - it looks OK in a picture, but the sl st to create the mosaic effect are raised compared to the rest of the pattern and I don't like that look.

I did the number of rows and stitches it calls for, but this one is a pain to measure as it curls all over the place - worse than any other square yet!

I sure hope there's another method of making mosaic that doesn't have those slip stitches, because I won't ever do mosaic if there isn't. :D

On to square 10!

Wendys Square 9

I liked making this one, it was pretty easy to do.

Donna's Square 9

This one was easy to do. The hardest part I had was getting the width the right size. It curls pretty bad. I had to pin it to get the picture. I like the look of this pattern. It's really neat.

Cindy's Square 9

I enjoyed knitting this one. I pulled a little too tightly across the slip 3 stitches I think, but I still like the way it turned out.
It is a very curly square, I had to put a lot of pins in it to get a picture.

Pauline Square 9

Not the best picture but the weather here is pretty ordinary at the moment and not predicted to get better. I had to pin it out so you can see the pattern better. It curls alot. Pretty pattern though.
