REGINA, wrote out her blanket pattern for us as an Easter Gift!
BASKET STITCH from an old donated paperback book:
Knitting dictionary of 800 stitches patterns, Crown publishers, inc.
Donated yarn. Soft 4 ply
Needle size 10 round 29”
Cast on multiple of six
Rows 1 and 7: K
Rows 2 and 8:P
Rows 3 and 5: * K1, P4, K 1*
Rows 4 and 6: * P1, K4, P1*
Rows 9 and 11:* P2,K2, P2*
Rows 10 and 12: * K2, P2, K2*
CIRCULAR 29” needle, size 10.
Cast on whatever you want in multiples of 6. I cast on 120 stitches.
Note: When I am making special items for the needy or hospice patients, I just keep knitting until all the donated yarn is finished, leaving enough yarn make a good wide edge with a single crochet stitch. If I have only enough yarn for a square, it has become a baby blanket; if the finished piece is very long, it becomes a prayer shawl for women or prayer blanket for men in our local hospice, JOURNEYCARE. A medium size piece could be given to a toddler+ for cuddling during naps! God is in the details. I am merely His hands on earth.
And this is my wake up view. Green green green grass and a touch of a blue sky with promises of a beautiful Easter weekend.
If you have a short week for Passover or Easter, I hope you get some good knitting time in! You are all a blessing to me.
