This square is designed to be a central focus for an afghan / blanket surrounded by other squares which meet the standard 12 inch worsted weight definitions. As such the final stitch count is 79 stitches per side (= 39 sts x 2 squares, + 1 st for the join).

Alternatively, if made in DK weight, Lavenham would make a generous sized cushion front cover.

The central section has two layers so will appear slightly raised compared to the rest of the square.

Lavenham is a Suffolk village that grew rich on the back of the medieval wool trade, leading it to have one of the largest parish churches in England. Over 300 listed buildings remain in the village. One of its residents was Jane Taylor who wrote the nursery rhyme ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.

A big thank you to my testers Berniece, Dani, Denise, Jilly and Lynne.
