I’m excited to share this Flying Geese Square knitting pattern with you today.
We are creating this colorwork knitting block with two different yarn colors. It’s very graphic, geometrical, and those of you that are quilt lovers, this is probably a familiar design. These stacked triangles are called Flying Geese and really fun to knit up.

Knit row 1 of Chart (see below), reading RS row from right to left.

Keeping cont of Chart, proceed in garter st (knit every row) for 39 more rows.
