This year is starting off slowly for blog posts. There's a problem with publishing new posts but not pre-scheduled. And now here's week 1. I did have this up but can't find it anywhere now.
Knit week 1
This is a quickie. It's a 1 row stitch pattern in a multiple of 4.
R1: * k2, yo, k2tog-b. Rep to the end.
Crochet week 1
Granny in rows
This is another easy and quick stitch pattern. It can be done with 1 color, 2 colors, or many colors and possibly use up leftovers. It's a multiple of 4.
R1: 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, * ch 1, sk 3 ch, 3 dc in next st. Rep from the * to the end.
R2: ch 4, * 3 dc in ch 1 st, ch 1. Rep from * to the end. End with dc on top of ch 3.
R3: ch 3, 2 dc in ch 1 space, * ch 1, 3dc in ch 1 space. Rep from the * to the end.
Rep r2 and r3 until the desired size is reached.
