Lilac Blossom Baby Blanket

This is such a pretty stitch - so I decided to use it for a little blanket too..........



With a simple garter stitch border ................
 
 
I used King Cole 'With a Twist' Baby Big Value DK in shade 248 (lilac twist).
 
It is a much paler colour than it looks in the photos.
 
And it's lovely and soft  - a pleasure to work with.
 
4mm needles

    1. This pattern at 132 sts is 24 Inches wide. To increase add in multiples of 4 stitches. (measure the width of the total stitches and add a series of 4 sts until it measures 32 inches wide.
      At least that's what I'd do.

  14. How do I determine the amount of yarn needed? Can you help?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would say yarn on needle and yarn marker. Usually in any patterns I've seen there wouldn't be any need for the yarn on needle term and it would the other term would be called a stitch holder.

  16. Ladies: While I can’t help with the amount of yarn required for the project, I posed the ”yon” & ”yrn” question to the “Addicted to Knitting” FB group. One helpful soul pointed me to this reference:

    Good luck, all!
