Hello StarKnuts patrons!!!  Here's our next installment of Harry's Birthday Blocks.

The knitted block is my own creation.  It reminds me of the Quidditch pitch. 





For the knitted block, I did a seeded check pattern.  I wasn't quite sure how to do a 12" with 2 colors so I decided to make 4 -  6" blocks.  Here's the 6" seeded check pattern. 

US 8 (5.0 mm)

Cast on 25 stitches

Row 1 ~ * K5 (P1, K1) twice, P1, rep from *, K5

Row 2 ~ * P5 *(P1, K1) twice, P1, rep from *, P5

Row 3 ~ repeat Row 1

Row 4 ~ repeat Row 2

Row 5 ~ repeat Row 1

Row 6 ~ repeat Row 2

Row 7 ~ *(K1, P1) twice, K1, P5, rep from *, (K1, P1) twice, K1

Row 8 ~ *(K1, P1) twice, K6, rep from *, (K1, P1) twice, K1

Row 9 ~ repeat Row 7

Row 10 ~ repeat Row 8

Row 11 ~ repeat Row 7

Row 12 ~ repeat Row 8

Repeat these 12 rows 2 more times.  Bind off.

Make 2 of each color for a total of four. Arrange as shown in pic & join using your favorite method.

 

Here's an option for a 12" seeded check if you want to use one color or experiment with 2 colors.

 

US 8 (5.0 mm)

Cast on 50 stitches

Row 1 ~ * K5 (P1, K1) twice, P1, rep from * 4 more times

Row 2 ~ * P5 *(P1, K1) twice, P1, rep from * 4 more times

Row 3 ~ repeat Row 1

Row 4 ~ repeat Row 2

Row 5 ~ repeat Row 1

Row 6 ~ repeat Row 2

Row 7 ~ *(K1, P1) twice, K1, P5, rep from * 4 more times

Row 8 ~ *(K1, P1) twice, K6, rep from * 4 more times

Row 9 ~ repeat Row 7

Row 10 ~ repeat Row 8

Row 11 ~ repeat Row 7

Row 12 ~ repeat Row 8

Repeat these 12 rows 5 more times.  Bind off.


Or another version of a 12" seed block.  Do which ever one you want & don't forget to have fun & show us your pics even if it's just progress of a previous block.

They're lovely! I have totally failed and not gotten my Ravenclaw yarn yet, so I'll be playing catch up as soon as I do!
