Cornish Gansey Squares Part 2: Lizard- Lattice

Posted on

square 2

So it's Monday again and time for Part 2 Of our four part Gansey Square Knit-a-long for Syrian Refugee Blankets and the 3 Bags Full Wool Market. This week I have used the simple but very effective Lizard: Lattice stitch pattern inspired by  Cornish Guernseys & Knitfrocks writted by Mary Wright. I love this particular pattern because although simple, produces a fabric which naturally ripples and bubbles and almost comes to life under your needles. I really urge you to give this pattern a go because the photo really doesn't do justice to it's attractive texture.

Again, I have used DK weight yarn and 3.5mm needles so the purl stitches really stand out. The finished square measures 6.5 x 6.5 in. Good luck and enjoy.
