Just a little cube, that’s all!
Someone wanted a cube design, so I drew it up. My daughter saw the sketch and wanted one, so I made it. The kittens saw the one my daughter had, and took it – so I made her another one.
What I’m trying to say is, although there is no reason for knitting these cubes, they are visually pleasing and people like them. So go and knit one.
If you’re still on the fence, they have a seamless construction and use Kitchener Stitch for closing the top with a link to a Kitchener tutorial for those of you who need to brush up on the technique.
