Product details

A free version of this pattern is available on Knitting with Chopsticks.

The Swallowtail Square is a sweet little 8x8”/20 x 20 cm afghan block featuring a richly textured butterfly cable motif on a seed stitch background. This square would make a magnificent blanket all on its own or alternated with stockinette squares, but would be equally at home adorning the corners of a simple blanket or pillow cover.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions (charts in the PDF only).

Level: Intermediate. Uses cables involving both knit and purl stitches.

Yardage: approx. 54-65 yd worsted/aran (4) weight yarn. Use a different weight yarn with appropriate needles to make a different sized square.

I’d love to see your makes! Create a project linked to the pattern and/or post on Instagram with the hashtags #swallowtailsquare and #clairdelunefiberart (tag me @clairdelunefiberart)!
