Do you all remember my ‘Octagon’ blanket project? The Octagon Blanket Project
Well today I had a lady called Linda contact me from Texas, for a knitting pattern for an Octagon and so here is a basic pattern. I will need to get out all my octagons and make some progress on them real soon.
Worked in 4-ply yarn
Using No. 11 needles cast on 12 sts.
Work in pattern of your choice,(here I have used garter stitch) inc. 1 st at both ends of next and every alternate row until there are 26sts on needle.
Work 14 rows straight.
Dec. 1 sts at both ends of next and every alternate row until 12 sts remain. Cast off
