Hold Me Closer: A Kniterary Afghan Block

I know we’ve been kind of silent the last two weeks. SA is finishing up finals for her first year of university; KM just started a wonderful job at a library. We’re not going anywhere! We’ll be posting a review tomorrow and should be back on schedule next week.

In the meantime, we do have something to share with you: our next Kniterary Afghan block!

The Kniterary Afghan is a project we introduced a few weeks ago; it’s a knit blanket made entirely out of knit book covers.

Today’s block comes from a book we reviewed a few weeks ago. It’s been our most popular review and it has a lovely cover, so we couldn’t wait to add it to our blanket. It’s Hold Me Closer by David Levithan!


The pattern that we’ve created can be done in either stranded colorwork, double knitting (with a bit of duplicate stitch for certain parts), or cross-stitching. I’ll be doing my entire blanket in double knitting with duplicate stitch, but mine will not be reversible.

You can download the pattern for this block here: HMCDoc.
