i'm still working on mine. it's about 26" across. i had to frog about five rows and i was so upset with myself because when you get that far out, it takes a lot of effort to do it again! Smiley

I made this blanket last year for my niece.  A long road trip (as a passenger) was essential to getting it done, since the last part gets mighty tedious.  For the edging, I knit a few rounds of garter stitch, then did a picot bind off.  It turned out very nicely.  Sorry no pics.

I am so sick of mine!  tindad, I would love to see your finished product.  I'm still trying to figure out what edging to use when I finally finish... I still have quite a ways to go!  My brother-in-law is having twin girls, so this will be one blanket.  I think I'll do the diamond and smocked blanket next for a little variety.

Progress so far:

I finally took pictures.  I did 9 rows of a ruffle, and I bound off with the color from the center.  both of those choices were about my yarn supply.  I didn't figure the ruffle in when I bought.

However, I like the different color on the edge.  I think it pulls it back together.





Anyway, the baby is due in 5 days, so it was time to be finished.  Good luck to everyone else!

I get the part of increase the 5 stitches to 10...but what then?  Technically it's only the 2nd  row...so what happens in between the 2 - 5?

I must be missing something?

I knit this before.  I just ignore the unlisted row.  And just alternate increase row with a knit row.  It works out just fine.

Good luck.   Smiley

Thank you penguino!   So just skip rows 3 & 4 then?  I wish the pattern was just a skosh more detailed.  gah!
