Lucky 4-Leaf Afghan Block

Last week, I finished a quick little project for my Harry Potter fiber community.

This is the Lucky 4-Leaf Afghan Block, a free pattern you can find on Ravelry…

The class prompt required students to choose one of the flags of a country participating in the Olympics and knit a project with all of that flag’s colors in it.

I selected Canada’s flag because I was, after all, born in Newfoundland and am a naturalized American citizen.

I used red and white Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn on size 5 needles.  It only took me an evening and a half to knit this.  I could have done it in one sitting, but by the time I started one night, it was already late.

I love this pattern because it’s knit from the center outward…in the round.  It was much more interesting than knitting flat.  If you’re a knitter or crocheter, you’ll understand what I mean.

I’m going to donate this block to charity because it’s nearly 12″ square, and I can’t see using it as a dishcloth.  It would be lovely, if put together with a number of similar squares, as a blanket.
