Stitch On Sunday Blanket – Week Sixteen

Stitch On Sunday Blanket Week Sixteen

Hello lovely!

Welcome to week 16 of the Stitch on Sunday Blanket.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can head here for the full explanation and start with week one.

Week 16’s square was the first-ever Stitch on Sunday that I did on my Instagram grid, back when it was just a stitch pattern for you to use as you, please. It’s such a wonderful crisscrossing pattern that I had to use it in the blanket.

The YouTube video for the swatch is now online so you can see exactly how to knit a full repeat, and there is also a video to teach you how to connect your knitting to the previous square as you work.

I send a weekly email to my mailing list, so if you would like an email once a week to remind you to work on your blanket, you can sign up here.

Please note, since the blanket squares started in January 2021, the emails you receive will start from week one. So you may see what is ahead long before you receive them. They will arrive weekly from the first Sunday after you sign up.


For the entire blanket, I will be using James C Brett DK with Merino since I have lots leftover from when I was selling baby knits. It’s a warm and soft yarn which is machine washable and, frankly, I won’t use it for much else now.

I’m also using 3.5mm (US 4) needles as I like the tight-knit look that this gives the James C Brett.

Please feel free to use whichever weight, type, and style yarn you prefer. There are no rules on this blanket. I am really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful versions you create. The only reason I am telling you the yarn and needles I’m using is in case you do want it exactly like mine.



  • k – knit
  • p – purl
  • yo – yarn over
  • ssk – slip the next stitch knitwise and the following stitch purlwise. Slip both stitches back onto the LH needle and knit them through the back loop
  • k2tog – knit two stitches together
  • knitwise – as if you knit
  • purlwise – as if to purl
  • LH – left hand
  • sk2p – slip one knitwise, knit two together, pass the slipped stitch over
  • ( ) – work the instructions inside the parentheses the number of times stated immediately afterward


Cast on 43 sts (This is the new start of a row of squares so even if you are joining as you go, you will still only need 43 sts).
Or a multiple of 6 sts + 1 sts.

See you next week for week 17.

Happy Knitting!
