1721  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: The Best Baby Presents Ever! Oodles of Pictures!!! on: July 22, 2005 12:17:20 PM
Thank you ever so much!  Myself too would love to learn how to knit and crotchet!  I seem to be all thumbs when it comes to needles.  I can sew without very many problems.  But you give me needles or hooks and I want to stab someone!  Not really!

Thank you ever so much again and again Gomerriffic (you ROCK)!

Keek



Aw thanks!  I needed a nice word today!

Okay so here it is:

Tulip Baby Blanket
Flower & Garden Magazine: Crafts Edition
July-August 1998


Materials are Four Skeins (100 grams per skein) of worsted weight yarn. ( I used a really soft acryllic that had the feel of mohair in white. It was really pretty. )
1 24-inch No. 8 circular knitting needle and 2 stitch markers (I think these are optional)

Finished measurements about 28 x 34 inches.
Gauge: in garter stitch (knit every row) 5 sts and eight rows = 1 inch.

While normally I would say gauge is HUGE  ( I didn't even bother with checking it, it worked out great. I didn't even check the size needles I used. I just picked the ones I thought would make the stitches look good) , however gauge wasn't nearly as important this time. The blanket was a bit bigger, but that is kind of what I wanted.

Cast on 136 stitches

Border: Row 1: K 3 , place marker, K to within last 3 sts, place marker, K 3 (see if you know how to continue a border you don't need the markers, other wise there ya go! )

Row 2 to 4: Knit every st, slipping markers as you work. (in other words knit row 2 turn, knit row 3 turn, knit row 4)

Tulip Pattern Row 1: K 3, slip marker, P to marker, slip marker, K 3

Row 2: K across

Row 3: K 3, P 6 * ( P 1, K 1 ) three times in next st,  P 12. Repeat from * across to the last 10 sts ending ( P 1, K 1 ) three times in next sts, P 6, K 3

Row 4: K 3, K 6 * P 6, K 12, repeat from *, ending P 6, K 3

Row 5: K 3, P 6 * K 6 , P 12, repeat from *, ending P 6, K 3

Row 6: Repeat Row 4

Row 7: K 3, P 2 tog twice, P 2 * (K 2, yo) twice, K 2 , P 2, P 2 tog four times, P 2. Repeat from * across, ending ( K 2, yo) twice, K 2, P 2, P 2 tog twice, K 3

Row 8: K 3, K 4, * P 8 , K 8. Repeat from * across, ending P 8 , K 4, K 3

Row 9: K 3, P 2 tog twice * K 2 tog, yo, (K 1, yo, K 2 tog) yo, K 1, yo, K 2 tog, P 2 tog four times. Repeat from * across, ending P 2 tog twice, K 3.

Row 10: K 3, K 2, *P 9, K 4. Repeat from * across ending K 2, K 3.

Repeat these 10 rows fo Tulip Pattern until 21 patterns have been completed. Repeat rows 1 and 2 of Tulip Pattern.

Border Row1: (the other end) K across, removing st markers.
Row 2 to 4: K across, bind off.

Finishing:Weave in loose ends of yarn. Lightly steam afghan with a warm iron.

All done. It's really easy. It just looks complicated. I would suggest just reading through it a few times. What's neat, is the pattern looks cool on both sides.  I did my very best to type it in a way that helps those of you who said you aren't so familiar with knitting. To the seasoned knitter, ignore me  Wink . I hope I've helped!

Okey Dokey I'll go ahead and post it here! Will have to do it a little later. Keep up on the knitting!

Nessagurl, try a hat. You can knit one flat and stitch it up in the end. Instand gratification w/o having to spend an eternity on a scarf etc!

I found out as long as I credit the author ( which is un-named) and the year/mag I can post it. So now should I post it here as it pertains to this craft or over in Knitting?

Thank you!  I can't tell knitting and crocheting apart!

If someone asks about the blanket is it okay if I ask you for it then?  Or if you would like to post it please feel free!  I really like it!  And thank you again for the help!!!!

Well, I think I can share it privately? I REALLY don't want to get kicked off this board. I love it here way too much. Maybe the moderator can step in and let us know? I'll look around the board. I found the pattern. Is there anyone who can answer the question?

Lovely presents! BTW the yellow blanket your Aunt made is knit!  I know this because I have this pattern. It's in an oooooold craft magazine I have. The pattern is called Tulips. If anyone wants it, I can hunt it down and share it can't I? Or is that illegal? It's a magazine that is no longer in print.

You can use a bit of same colored elastic about 1/4 inch and straight stitch it a couple times. Stretch the elastic as you sew. When you let go you get the rouching. The other option is to use the gather technique Hunny used then stitch a straight seam over it in the middle a couple times to keep it .

There's a fabulous top that sewed two little channels in the shirt and put ribbons through it. That could look really cool w/extra ribbon or a bow or stomething at the end of each Rouching
