Yarn Weight(2) Fine (23-26 stitches to 4 inches)


  • 601-660 Bonbons Yarn: Celebrate ball       
  • Lion Brand Knitting Needles- Size 5 [3.75 mm]        
  • Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)


    22 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.
    BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

With hot pink, cast on 30 stitches.
Knit 5 rows.
Row 1: Knit first 4 stitches, purl across to last 4 stitches, knit last 4 stitches.
Row 2: Knit across.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until almost all hot pink has been used. Change to dark blue and continue to repeat Rows 1 and 2 until almost all dark blue has been used.
Continue as established, repeating Rows 1 and 2 and changing color as each is used up as follows: pea green, light blue, emerald, peach, purple, red. Work until final color block (red) measures about 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) less than previous color blocks. With red, knit 4 rows.
Bind off.

With large-eyed blunt needle, weave in ends.

Bonbons yarn is actually a 2 weight yarn, but i like the idea of using 4 better, I shall use this as a stash buster for all my leftover 4 yarn. Thank you.
