Knit the Knitterati Squares with Marsha – Block #4

Do you find yourself eagerly waiting for that email notification every three weeks? The one that will let you know the newest pattern installment in the Cascade Knitterati Knit Along has been released? If so, you are not alone! Our volunteer knitter, Marsha, along with hundreds of avid Ravelry members, is feeling the very same anticipation and we’ve been enjoying watching knitters tackle the patterns so earnestly.

Block #3 was an interesting and educational exercise in slip-stitch lattice work and bobbles.

Elongated stitches make for an elegant border to this regal design by renowned designer Nicky Epstein. Not only have these patterns been a fun way to learn new technique, they are a great exercise in pattern reading as well. Written and charted instructions are provided, giving you the option to try your hand at following a chart on a small scale.

Block #4 was released Wednesday and according to Marsha it was so addictive she simply couldn’t stop!

By the looks of her progress in the photo below she didn’t sleep either! Don’t you just love it when you find a pattern that intrigues you so much you don’t even notice the time slipping by?

Nothing accompanies an addictive pattern as well as an addictive yarn! Cascade 220 Superwash Merino definitely fits that bill. This super-soft, springy merino is the ideal choice for cables and twisted stitches. Once you start knitting you won’t want to put it down!

If you’ve not yet signed up for the Cascade Knitterati Knit Along, it’s still not too late! You’ll be amazed at how fast you can catch up, and at how much you will learn along the way. All you need to do is sign up here to receive the patterns that are released via email every three weeks. Then take a trip to your favourite LYS for some Cascade 220 Superwash Merino, grab your needles and cast on!

Don’t forget to keep sending photos of your progress to cascadegradientlapghan@estelledesigns.ca. We love seeing your creations!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
