3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / another celtic knot baby blanket (lots of pics) on: August 03, 2013 09:17:20 AM
My love of celtic cables continues to grow. I posted my celtic knot pillows ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=409726.msg4836845#msg4836845 )and the first celtic knot baby blanket ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=411673.msg4862679#msg4862679) here in the past, and now I have just finished another baby blanket for my cousin's baby boy who was born this week.

All the knots are new designs. Just like the others, they are all symetrical along the x- and y- axis and consist of one continous loop.


I want the baby to be able to lay on the ground on this blanket, so to give it the needed thickness and insulation from a possibly cold floor, I added thick batting and a flece lining. (the picture was sadly taken before ironing;-)

The binding was knitted around the entire blanket in the round after I had assembled it, which was kind of unwieldy, but I like the end result.

I started this project pretty much as soon as I finished the last of my celtic knot pillows. It will be shipped to my cousin, who just had her first baby.

Some of the knots are the same,


but I also designed 5 new ones. As with the others, these are also symetrical along both x- and y- axis and consist of only one continuous loop.


This time, I used a six stitch cable as the border instead of the four stitch one I used for the pillows.

The yarn is Lang Yarns Linosa. I had bought it in from the leftover binn of my LYS several years back for one Euro per skein. I used about 19 skeins, I think, worked on 4 mm needles.

I am really happy with the way this turned out.

Thank you for the nice comments everyone! I am happy to see that others also like my pillows. I had so much fun knitting them (and am already working on the next celtic knot project).

I haven't posted here in forever, but I really like how this project turned out.

I designed all the knots myself. Each knot consists of only one continuous loop and is symmetrical along the x- and y- axis.
I didn't make any charts (far too much work). Instead, I looked at some of the celtic cable patterns I had to figure out how to to the start- and end- loop as well as the crossings and then I knitted straight from the drawings.

The fifth pillow was actually the first one I did. It looked a lot nicer in the drawing. Once I saw how this one turned out, I made sure to include more free space intothe other designs.

Each pillow has the same knot on the front and back. The knots are bordered by a simple 4 stitch cable which is continuous around the whole pillow.

To close the pillows, I added a simple hidden button band.

The size of the pillows was dictated by the pattern and the gauge of the wool ( Lionbrand Fishermen's wool), but they ended up fitting my standard sized small pillows exactly. I think they are going to look nice on my bed once I get around to making the other new stuff it needs.

(I also have the pillows posted on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/arualms/celtic-knot-pillows)

I recently saw some great tutorials for doing toner transfers using citra solve instead, which is
-not toxic
-supposedly smells good

It's not available here in Germany as far as I can tell, but if you can get your hands on it, maybe you should give that a try.

These are beautiful!
Ifyou don't mind,I have a question regarding the technique:Looking at the video, she kind of brushes over sewing the pillows together. Looking at your pictures, I can not see a visible seam holding the pillows together, only the handstitching along each pillow. How do you do that?
