We are back with three new blocks for our free “Hug Me Later” KAL as well as a short update:
Carlos is getting better and better every day. However, unfortunately, he is still suffering from the long term effects after getting Covid-19 in late March, and his recovery will take longer than first predicted. Therefore, we are putting all our plans to resume the Quarantine Knitting Podcasts on ice until the end of summer, and hopefully, we will be able to start again sometime in August. In the meantime, we will continue to publish videos on our YouTube channel every Sunday, since luckily, we managed to make a large number of recordings in January 2020, before the pandemic, and we still have many unpublished videos left in our queue.
Block number 28 is in honour of “World Bee Day” which was earlier this week, on May 20th. We all know how important pollinators are for our ecosystem, and yet, bees are at risk of extinction due to human activities. We hope that more people will become aware of this and do their bit to help protect these species, which are vital to our lives.

HUG ME LATER KAL PATTERN
Materials: Any DK yarn in any quality, texture or any colour. It’s really up to you! The gauge of the yarn you are looking for in your stash is approximately 22 stitches and 30 rows to 10 cms/ 4 inches. However, dot worry if it’s not exactly this, everything will work. We promise!
You will need yarn in 2 different colours for each daily clue and the quantities per colour per clue are going to be very small, about 6 – 8 grams per colour.
Needles: 2 needles size 4.0 mm / U.S. Size 6. We are working with 2 dpns in 20 cm length / U.S. 8”. Since we will be knitting back and forth, you can use other, longer needles if you like, but the shortest size should be 20cm / 8”. Don’t go for anything shorter than this! Circular needles can also be used.
Finished size of our squares: After blocking them, our squares are 13cm wide x 14 cm long. Do not worry if your squares are not the same size as ours. The project will be individually tailored to your yarn and there are no sizes to worry about.
CO 29 sts = row 1.
Knit the next 38 rows following the daily charts below.
(Even-numbered rows are purl rows and odd-numbered rows are knit rows.)
Bind off after row 39 purlwise.
Sew in ends and press the square with a wet towel and a hot iron.
Our best tip to keep the edges neat:
We knit the first stitch on each needle, both when working knit-side and purl-side, to make a more firm edge. On needles were we use both colours, we knit the last stitch with both colours, but when we turn the work, we knit or purl the first stitch only with the main colour.
