1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lettuce Baby Blanket on: February 08, 2008 03:17:06 PM
My best friend just found out she's pregnant so it was cause for a new baby blanket.

This knits up nice and quick.  The stitch pattern is very easy to memorize so you don't have to constantly read the pattern.

Size 13 Circular knitting needle, or size to obtain gauge
Tapestry Needle

Gauge (nice to check, but not super important unless you want a very specific size)
13sts and 17 rows= 4''x4'' over welting pattern
Stitch Pattern Welting Fantastic
multiple of 11sts

Note: odd-numbered rows are wrong-side rows

Rows 1-5- Knit
Row 6- *K2tog, K2, knit into front & back of each of the next 2 sts, K3, SSK; rep from *
Rows 7,9,and 11- Purl
Rows 8, 10, and 12- repeat Row 6
Repeat Rows 1-12


CO 118 sts.
R1-5- Knit.
R6- K4, *K2tog, K2, knit into front and back of each of the next 2 sts, K3, SSK; rep from *; end K4.
R7, 9, and 11- K4, P110, K4.
R8,10, and 12- Repeat Row 6.
Repeat rows 1-12, 13 more times, or until desired length, ending on a R12.
Knit 5 more rows.

With tapestry needle weave in loose ends.

(Stitch pattern taken from Barbra Walker's, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns.)

Enjoy!  Post pictures if you make one, and let me know if something is wrong with the pattern.

You have done an excellent job. Tatting has been on my list of things to learn for several years now.  I have tried a little by myself but I need to find someone who can show me some of the things.

I want to butcher my scrabble set, but then my bf would probably be upset about that, must keep my eyes open for used sets.

I've always wondered about making a swimsuit, something you have once again sent floating though my mind.

Haha, my boys from Big Horn too. Thats why I'm here. So let me know if you head out here.  It's okay, but I'm bored right now because I haven't gotten a job yet. I guess more time to make things.

Hey, I have just relocated to Sheridan and am looking for any fellow craftsters.  I dabble in a lot of different crafts, right now I am really into knitting, but would like to met others in the area who do any crafts.

Hey, I live in gainesville but I spend the weeks traveling around the state. I would love to get together with people to knit on the weekend. I learned to knit when I was a little girl. I have never taught anyone to knit but I would be willing to try. I have a lot of supplies.
