Image of The New Tumbling Blocks Knit Pattern

We re-colored one of our most popular afghan patterns so that it is even more eye-popping than ever. This extraordinary piece uses 17 balls of Wool-Ease® to show off your knitting skill in a very special way. The optical illusion creates a three dimensional appearance to make this a conversation piece as well as the centerpiece of your room.

The New Tumbling Blocks Knit Pattern

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts and 24 rows = 4" in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

When changing colors, twist yarn on WS from underneath to avoid holes.
