Square Twenty Two of the Traveling Knit Afghan is here and it brings a beautiful mesh with it!

After a couple of stops in Chicago, the last one with Northknits, the Traveling Knit Afghan is now in Michigan. Read more about this afghan’s journey in this post here.


Destiny Meyer of Knifty Knittings is the designer of the twenty-second square of our afghan.

Destiny is the knitter and designer behind Knifty Knittings. I didn’t know her before this square so I went to her blog to find out more. It seems she started out by sharing some really awesome knitting tips, such as this one on how to knit jogless one row stripes! Maybe you’ve known how to do this for a long time, but for me, this is a game-changer! I love stripes and this trick is the secret ingredient I was missing in my makes. Then, she evolved into a designer and you’ll find beautiful patterns in her shop both for beginners as well as intermediate knitters.

For this square, I used again the Beige Norway 10 ply yarn from Morris & Sons and my 4.0 mm knitting needles.

I just love that spine separating the mesh!

Here is the pattern for Square Twenty Two of the Traveling Knit Afghan.

For her square, Destiny chose a meditative stitch so that we can have a little peace and quiet during these crazy times. It is knit diagonally, just like Square Four. Don’t be alarmed, because this doesn’t mean it’s harder to make. In fact, it’s really just an easy garter stitch – made of knits and purls – coupled with yarn overs to make the eyelets.

This square also features a beautiful “spine” which is achieved by using centred decreases. Overall, the pattern is fairly simple. I only had a couple of doubts when I got to the last 7 stitches. But I followed them, and I finished my squared. 🙂

Because it is knit diagonally, it’ll be really wonky when you finish it. But nothing a little blocking won’t fix. Just give it a little steam or wet block it and it will even up! Read more about blocking in this blog post here.

Final thoughts on Square Twenty Two

A meshy square that’s knit diagonally to keep us on our toes!

For her square, Destiny decided on a meditative stitch to give us some calmness and peace of mind. And with the year we’ve been having, getting some quiet time for ourselves is something to be really grateful for.

I hope that following along this project with me has also given you a bit of that calmness. 🙂

Keep knitting and I’ll see you in the next square!
