Flying Geese Square Knitting Pattern

I’m excited to share this Flying Geese Square knitting pattern with you today.

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.

This pattern is the first clue of the Bernat Stitch Along that I’m hosting this season. Make sure to check out the Log CabinAttic Windows, and Pinwheel Blocks, too. I hope you join me and create the entire blanket during this 6-week KAL.
