So can you remember me telling you about how much I loved the ‘Solomon’s Knot’ stitch, well I decided to go looking for some other patterns that used this stitch and do you know what I found…or didn’t find as the case maybe…that there is NO afghan square that has a Solomon’s Knot in it – though if I’m wrong I’d love a link to other squares that use this stitch.
This was an issue I thought had to be rectified as soon as possible and so the ‘Solomon’s Cross’ Afghan Square was born!
A uniform little square that would look great in a multi-square afghan or worked up in different colours sewn together as a blanket – the possibilities are endless!
And for anyone that is not familiar with the stitch I have included a full photo tutorial in the pattern on how to do a single and double Solomon’s Knot.
So I now have a square for March all finished up and ready to join my Midnight Eagle Owl square and the Shy Violet square in my self set mini challenge to create a new Afghan Square each month this year…now I need to get thinking about my square for April! But in the meantime this pattern is now available for you to download (or favourite for later) from Ravelry or Craftsy.
