where did you get the pattern?
Thanks! Whoops..forgot the pattern. I didn't follow this other than to learn how she did it. I just went off on my own. The variegated yarn colors really look cool in it!

I've finished my 1 square, well..kinda. I bound off 1 row too soon, so I'll need to rip it back a little and add the other row, lol. So I've been kinda procrastinating on it a bit. I'll try to get to it today, so I can cast on for another!

I have been TRYING to work on this pattern. It was giving me fits, I kept getting extra stitches, or not enough, a lot of frogging, but I was determined to learn it. Last night I finally managed to get a repeat done, and it all worked out. BUT... I cast on 47 instead of 57. With the 47 it measures 11.5 inches, if I cast on 57 will it be too big?
I'm gonna frog it one more time, and cast on 57 to see what happens.

My squares
Here are pics of my squares. The finished was done in just garter stitch and the one still on the needles is 5x5 rib.
Theyare not as beautiful as some but my skills are still limited.

It doesn't look like your skills are still limited.

Thank you purlygirl.

I can knit toys and such but i find it so difficult to follow certain patterns.
I am one of those people that can try a pattern and do it wrong constantly and then if i leave it and go back to it a month later i find i can do it.

Rita, that is nothing to worry about. before any of us started knitting, none of us knew how to hold the needles.
as for me, i've been looking online for patterns for 12x12 afghan squares. it seems that no one wants to make this easy because i can't find any. i've never taken a stitch pattern and used it to make something. i guess it might help if i actually had a stitchionary. looks like i'll just have to get up the guts to experiment.
