So just like the solid square, what the difference is just there is really no difference this time. This piece that is sticking up here, you see this is part of the group of three if you look at it. It’s part of the group of three. I put fingers in all of the four corners. Do you see that? So what we want to do is we want to grab the material and stick it right in that corner piece right there and we’re going to add—grab your material stick it into the corner pull it through and pull through two and two.
And then again, in the corner piece, sticking it in through it two and two. And now we’re officially turning a corner so we’re going to add four, so one two, three and four, going in to the same hole just like we went with the regular solid, one color. We’re going to put two in there. So that was one and two.
So what's the advantage—okay, so this is the solid square so we’re looking for the top of the next post to stick your stitch in. Now because you are working with two colors, you'll see that it’s sticker. Can you see that the holes are really quite obvious? So stick it in and pull through two, two, so look for the next stitch.
Okay, so we’re looking at this now this is the last post, we’re not going to put anything in that one but we’re going to go right in to the corner and add two stitches right in to the end. Okay, we’re officially going to do a turn so we’re going to chain four, one two, three and four, going in to the same corner piece. So what is the advantage to do in two colors at the same time? It’s thicker, it’s easier to hold. It will be a lot warmer blanket so okay so we got there so we go right in to the top of the next stitch.
So every time you end the line like so, we’re now working our way across the line. No matter how big you make this thing.
Okay, so this is the last post, so no matter how big you make this thing the last post never gets one but you'll go two directly into the hole to the corner section. Okay, you always chain four, one two three and four. Wrapping your material around, going into the hole and then no matter whenever you're starting the line or after you done that four, you’ve always put two in that corner section and that is the only way that this blanket will grow properly. And trust me I know that from the experience.
So you just keep working your way across the top of just on the outside and you just keep working one big rotation. Okay, that’s the last post so you just skip that go right in to the corner for two. So now we’re going to officially turn, so one two three and four. It’s going into the corner again. So this is how to make two string using two strings as one solid square or rectangle and it looks so random even though and it is random like the colors just keeps switching around on the needle and what were they appear so that it makes you work look random. So if you have some pretty funky colors you want to work with it’ll be really cool too.
So anyway, so I guess the sky is the limit and because this is never ending, you finish when you feel like it and you go as big as you want it, two, three and four and keep going and you can also do this with rectangles too. It’s not a big deal.
I will say though that doing two strings as one is a big material hug, so you have to buy double amount of wool because you are be using two strings as one. But if you compare like—so you can see that it’s not an official square but as this thing gets bigger and the shape actually does settle out and you end up with the really nice blanket. So the difference is obviously the thickness. You can see that quite obviously there so there you go.
