May17 KAL - Chunky Knit Throw BLOCK 2

Teekay   >  8 May 2017

​Welcome to the second in a four part release to create a Chunky Knit Throw.

This Block is knit in a Basketweave Stitch which is just a combination of basic Knit and Purl stitches. It takes a little while for the pattern to really emerge, so please be patient. It is worth it!
