Free Pattern: Beaded Rib Ten Inch Square (10")

This pattern is so easy, you will probably almost be able to do it in your sleep, yet it has a decorative texture that looks good on either "right" or "wrong" side.








Our guild is setting out to make squares for blankets for a local hospice, and we figured a ten inch square would be a good size.

The rib will pull in at the sides and look smaller until you block it to ten inches.
