Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Square Pattern

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Square by Tuppence

Design inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll


This is the square I designed to represent Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for My Reading Afghan. This was the March-April selection for the Ravelry group, 'Knitting 19th-Century Novels'. The two columns represent the White Rabbit's footprints and how Alice chased after him and thus began her adventures.

Size: Approximately 8 x 8 inches

Materials used:

Red Heart Super Saver yarn (or any worsted-weight yarn) in Paddy Green

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 Paddy Green. (Odd-numbered rows are the right side.)

Rows 1-5: K.

Row 6: K2, p30, k2.

Row 7: K10, ssk, (yo, k1) 3 times, yo, k2tog, k1, ssk, (yo, k1) 3 times, yo, k2tog, k9.

Row 8: K2, p30, k2.

Row 9: K10, ssk, k5, k2tog, k1, ssk, k5, k2tog, k9.

Row 10-41: Repeat rows 6 through 9 eight more times.

Bind off as if to knit. Weave in all yarn ends.
