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, Hadleigh would make a generous sized cushion front cover.

Photos and charts are provided along with the written instructions.

Hadleigh is another of the Suffolk medieval wool towns. Its wealth lead to the church becoming a “peculiar” of the diocese of Canterbury, rather than part of the local diocese. At one time the priest in charge was Rev’d Spooner, remembered for crossing the initial letters of words (Spoonerisms).

Across the churchyard, the medieval guildhall is still used as function rooms for the town. It is one of many wooden beamed buildings remaining in the town centre.
