I just wanted to stop by quickly and show you the finished blanket I made for my second Facebook “Pay it Forward” gift.
I used 4 balls of Bernat Super Value yarn and US size 8 circular knitting needles.
I casted on 180 stitches and slipped the first stitch purl wise, knitted across the row, then purled the last stitch. I did this for every row creating a garter stitch blanket with an I-cord edge.
When I came close to the end of one colour and wanted to add my next colour, I knit 2 rows of my one colour, then 2 rows of my next colour and I did this twice so you would have 2 stripes of the new colour intertwined with 2 stripes of the colour before.
This one is heading to Sault Ste. Marie for my godson and his family. 😀
