I haven't looked at the videos on this site yet, but plan to. I just wanted to go ahead and ask the question:
I am a new knitter, getting pretty consistent with my knits and purls, and want to start learning some new stitches soon.
Right now, though, I'm working on a set of dishcloths in the double bump pattern that I will probably give as a gift. I am making one that is multi-colored, and than a couple that are coordinating solids. With the leftovers, I thought it would be neat to make one that has 4 blocks in each of the colors in a 2 x 2 block format.
My question is, is it possible to do blocks of color in any pattern? The double bump pattern can be worked in multiple of 3 + 1, and right now I'm using 37 stitches. If I do blocks, do I have to do each block in a multiple of 3 + 1, or do I just switch to the other color right in the middle? Should I make 4 separate blocks and then bind them together?
Like I said, I haven't watched the videos yet, so maybe that will answer some of my questions.
Any advice is appreciated!
