Stitch On Sunday Blanket – Week Twenty

Stitch On Sunday Blanket Week Twenty

Hello lovely!

Welcome to week 20 of the Stitch on Sunday Blanket and our halfway point! Can you believe we are here already?

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

Week 20’s square is Lace Blossoms. A simple pattern with pretty flowers placed through stocking stitch.

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 back to the LH needle and knit them both through the back loop.
  • k2tog – knit two stitches together
  • ( ) – work the instructions inside the parentheses the number of times stated immediately afterward
  • sk2p2 – slip one stitch knitwise, knit the next two stitches together, pass the slipped stitch over
  • RH – right hand
  • LH – left hand
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • rep – repeat


Cast on 39sts (If joining as you go, you would normally cast on an extra stitch, however, this is the start of a new blanket row so no stitch is needed).
Or a multiple of 14 sts, plus 11 sts.
Personally, if the 39sts isn’t working for you and the size is not right, I would change the needle size you’re using rather than casting on another 14 sts.

Row 1: k3, k2tog, yo, *k1, yo, ssk, k9, k2tog, yo; rep from * to last 6 sts, k1, yo, ssk, k3
Row 2 and all alt rows: p
Row 3: k2, k2tog, yo, k1, *k2, yo, ssk, k7, k2tog, yo, k1; rep from * to last 6 sts, k2, yo, ssk, k2
Row 5: k1, k2tog, yo, k2, *yo, ssk, k1, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo, k2; rep from * to last 6sts, (yo, ssk, k1) twice
Row 7: k3, yo, ssk, *k1, k2tog, yo, k9, yo, ssk; rep from * to last 6 sts, k1, k2tog, yo, k3
Row 9: k4, *yo, s2kp2, yo, k11; rep from * to last 7 sts, yo, s2kp2, yo, k4
Row 11: k5, *k5, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k4; rep from * to last 6 sts, k6
Row 13: k5, *k4, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k3; rep from * to last 6 sts, k6
Row 15: k5, *k3, k2tog, yo, k2, yo, ssk, k1, yo, ssk, k2; rep from * to last 6 sts, k6
Row 17: k5, *k5, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k4; rep from * to last 6 sts, k6
Row 19: k5, *k6, yo, s2kp2, yo, k5; rep from * to last 6 sts k6
Row 20: p

Rep rows 1 – 20 once more, then work rows 1 – 14.
Cast off.

See you next week for week 21!

Happy Knitting!
