Day 30: How to Knit the Interlocking Cross Stitch {31 Days of Knitting Series}

Today is Day 30 of our 31 Days of Knitting Challenge. One day left! Today’s stitch is called the Interlocking Cross Stitch. I’m currently working on a blanket that uses this same stitch and I love the way it looks in a long panel.

HOW TO KNIT THE INTERLOCKING CROSSES PANEL {FOR THE LOOM}

MATERIALS USED IN THE VIDEO:

Knitting Loom: Regular Gauge Kiss Loom {with 1 spacer in between the pins & the pegs} – We are working with just one side of the regular gauge modular loom.

Knitting Tools: We are using the knitting tool that comes with the kiss looms, but the tool that comes with your loom usually works best!

Ball of Yarn: We are using Manos Maxima 100% Merino Wool in the color “Currant”
