The Lostghan: 4 and 8



Lostghan Squares. Note: the texture is subtle. If you want it to stand out more, you can embroider a border around the key parts, or duplicate stitch over them.

#4 – John Locke. I made this with blue yarn because I felt it represented Locke best. It incorporates a few 4’s and the initials J L. I made the 4 with all straight lines – I view Locke as a very straight arrow person.

Guage – 28 stitches = 6 inches, 36 rows = 6 inches (or 6 rows/inch).

Cast on 28 stitches – use a loose cast-on so the square stays flat. I used the cable cast-on.

Cast off loosely. I use: K2 tog tbl then place stitch back on left needle and repeat. It creates a loose bind off that looks nice as a flat piece.

#8 – Hugo Reyes (Hurley).

I made this one with yellow yarn – to remind me of Hurley’s chicken restaurant. The 8 is round like Hurley.
