9" Square Patterns

Here are two 9" square patterns that I designed while working on the 2010 Pine Street Inn Knit-a-thon. Both of these squares were knit with size 8 knitting needles using worsted weight yarn.

These are pretty simple squares, but as I'm going for my goal of 70 squares, finding different patterns keeps it interesting.

Circles and Stripes
  • cast on 36 sts
  • row 1 - purl across
  • row 2 - K1, K2 tog, YO, YO, K2tog, *K2, K2tog, YO, YO, K2tog* repeat until last stitch, K1.
  • row 3 - purl across. In each double yarn over, K1, P1.
  • row 4 - knit across
  • row 5 - purl across
  • repeat rows 2-5 until the piece measures 9 inches, then bind off.
Mock Garter
  • Cast on 36 sts
  • *K4, P4* across for all rows.
  • Knit until the square is 9" long, then bind off.

  1. thanks for the drop stitch scarf. i had started one and lost the directions. the drop and eyelet add a real touch of class.

  2. You're very welcome! I also happen to love the eyelet. I didn't realize until after I had made it, but that isn't something that is found in many drop stitch scarf patterns :)

  3. in row 3 in each 'double yarn over K1,P1' Does that mean you K1,P1 in each yarn over or do you just knit the first yarn over and purl the second yarn over?

    1. Great question! It means that you K1 in the first YO and P1 in the second YO.

  4. i have no idea why, but the stitches just keep on increasing. is that supposed to happen??? and u see how on yours, the holes, on mine,...well its connected, like there is a 'line' that separates.....the hole.? sorry, I just started knitting so I, don't really know what they are called

    1. The stitches should not increase. Each YO, YO makes two stitches, but for each YO there is a K2tog where you knit two stitches together, thereby decreasing a stitch. Have you been knitting the K2togs where written?

  5. Thanks for the simple square patterns, as a new knitter I've just found my first project, to create a small patch work throw.

  6. Hi, not sure what you mean with row 3, i know purl across, but i am a little stuck with ,in each double yarn over,k1,p1.Could you explain please, . It has been a while since i did knitting thank you .

    1. Sure thing!

      On row 3, when you are K1, P1 into the double yarn over you are Knitting into the first YO and then purling into the second yarn over. (Trying to purl into back to back YO's doesn't work very well.) Please let me know if you need more clarification.

  7. Is anon getting confused doing a double YO? The first time I did one I didnt know how, but soon figured out that what is important is you cannot k 2 stitches in a double YO. You must k1, then p1 then k2tog tondec that extra st in the dole YO. This may be what is confusing her. You MUST know how to work a dole YO on the return Purl Row.
