I posted pix of this project over at attachlings, but thought I’d update here.
I found a pattern in the book A Passion for Knitting for an ‘Increased/Decreased Baby Blanket’ and that was the inspiration for this project.
The yarn is Cascade Eco-Wool, 250 gram, ‘green.’ It’s wonderful to work with and cost only $15.
The pattern I’m working with/creating as I go is:
CO 5 stitches
Knit one row
next row: *k2, yarn over, k to end of row*
repeat between the * until you have 126 stitches
next row: *k2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end of row*
repeat between the * until you have 5 stitches
I’m in the decreasing row section, currently at 73 stitches.
Working on this has really gotten my brain thinking about a shawl I want to make for Whinnie…she’s even let me try this blanket on her shoulders many times as I’ve progressed. I think the sizing is right on for her little 2yo self.
