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.
