BD Chessboard 6″ Square

BD Chessboard pattern

This was written for the Twilight Crafts Black & Red Swap.  It’s a basic pattern and there are a million and one variations on this theme.  This is written to be 6″ with a simple sc edge.  It’s super-duper easy and, I think, makes a fun black & red square!

BD Chessboard pattern
Throughout the pattern, you will be working across the strand of yarn that you are not using.  This means you’ll only have ends to weave in at the beginning and end.
