This was a very repetitive pattern, so it was quite nice to work on a square that did not require too much concentration. The block gets turned over at the end of each row so every alternate row I was working on the reverse side. It is great to be learning all these new techniques.
I also learned how to insert the hook in the front loop and back loop of a stitch to achieve a raised pattern. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I did that stitch accidentally way back on block 4.
Degree of difficulty: Easy
Time taken: 2 hours
Result: This block looks knitted (disclaimer: I know nothing at all about knitting).
