Vintage Sampler Blanket: Slip stitch wings

This is the latest square for my vintage sampler blanket. It is made in Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk using 4 mm needles. For a 6″ square I cast on 36 stitches and knit 60 rows.

This is the first square I’ve made using my new colour palette inspired by a lovely painting on Michelle‘s blog. The colours are taken from one of the roses in the picture.

Here are the instructions for this square. It requires a number of stitches divisible by 10, plus 4 plus 2 edge stitches.

1st row: Colour A. Knit.

2nd and all alternate rows: K1, purl all sts, slipping all slipped sts purlwise, k last st.

3rd row: Change to colour B. K2, *slip 2, k8; rep from * to last 4 sts, slip 2 k2.

5th row: Change to colour C. K1, *cable 1 back (c1b), cable 1 forward (c1f), k2, slip 2, k2; rep from * to last st, k1.

7th row: Change to colour A. K2, *slip 2, k2, c1b, c1f, k2; rep from * to last 4 sts, slip 2, k2.

Continue to work 2 rows in colours A, B and C while repeating rows 5-8.
