Why squirrel ?

I hadn’t planned to make this - or have it as a pattern - but I found myself making it and thought it was perfect for knitting while watching the action and thought you might like to make one on what the BBC is calling “Super Saturday”.

Over in the Stitchnerds group we refer to shiny new ideas that we just have to knit right away as “squirrels” - we’re even having a special Ravellenics laurel for them.

If you haven’t already, why not join us in the group for another week of Ravellenic fun? ? -

Same border, different shape: wraptastic

Two other simple garter stitch knits for the games:
Just Start It - 2016
Just Knit It - 2012

More boomerangs (my husband came up with the name back in 2013 to distinguish the shape from a triangle and a crescent I had in the Linen Weaves collection and it seems to have stuck) :
