I wanted to share with you one of the blankets I made for a Christmas gift.
I’m just thrilled with how it turned out and you can be sure I’ll be making one for myself! 😀
As most knitters know, when you use the stockinette stitch without some sort of border, your edges will curl. So when I was designing this blanket, I purposely didn’t add a border so the curled edges would create a soft, ripply edge on the blanket.
So if you want to make one too, here’s what you’ll need to know!
I’m going to play around a bit and try to make them a bit more colourful; maybe add a different coloured trim and toe or perhaps make stripes. I’m also going to knit 2 at one time so they will end up being the exact same length.
“The Little Royal” Bunting Bag and Beanie is the perfect gift for a soon to be prince or princess in your life. It’s a quick and easy project that knits up on US size 6 straight needles using DK weight yarn.
I don’t have to work today, so I’ll be knitting away trying to get my Christmas gifts done!!
Well, I have 2 projects on the go I was hoping to have completed and the patterns written for them by now, BUT, it’s the middle of November and I have yet to start even one Christmas present!!
So the projects will have to wait!!
