The Thirteenth Tale Square Pattern

The Thirteenth Tale Square by Tuppence

Design inspired by The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield


The description of the design components (and what parts of the book inspired them) includes possible spoilers, so I won't include that description and explanation here. It is available in a post on the Ravelry Book Club group page on Ravelry:

Size: Approximately 8 x 8 inches

Materials used:

Red Heart Super Saver yarn (or any worsted-weight yarn) in Black and Light Grey.

Size 8 knitting needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)

Gauge: 17 stitches and 23 rows = 4" x 4" in stockinette stitch

Cast on 34 stitches with Black. (Odd-numbered rows are the right side.)

Then commence chart. Each row is how it appears as it is on your needles. (The cast-on stitches are row 1).

The border (first 4 rows, last 4 rows and first 2 stitches and last 2 stitches of every row) is knitted in garter stitch.

The rest of the chart is knitted in stockinette stitch (knit right-side rows, purl wrong-side rows).

When changing colors, be sure to wrap the new color around the old color to prevent gaps.

The last row (46) is the binding-off row. Bind off as if to knit. Weave in all yarn ends.
