Lace Knitted scarf

To challenge myself a little I started lace knitting in this scarf for a friend.

The pattern is super simple and easy to memorize.It is a free pattern and has a chart with it which turns out is far easier to follow for lace knitting. You can find free pattern for this scarf here. I just didn’t put in the nupp stitches.

It took me a little over 3 months to make this super long scarf. But I am so happy with the end product. It is completely worth the time. And the yarn is gorgeous.

I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace yarn for this and changed colors at the end of each skein.

Diagonal stripes baby blanket No. 2

Hello there,

This is the latest blanket I’ve completed. It is the same as one I’ve made in pink before.

I am in love with this pattern. It is soft and warm. And , it is a great travel project, just because it is garter stitch and you don’t need to look at it while knitting. The pattern incorporated a nice uniform edging to the blanket. So I didn’t do an additional edging.

I am trying this color combination of turquoise and green, for the first time. I think it turned out to be pretty good.

 

Materials:

Caron simply soft, blue mint, off-white, soft blue, and limelight.

It is so much fun to try new colors for edging. As her nursery has a nautical theme, we decided to have a turquoise trim. I hope she likes it.

Caron simply soft yarn in the colors of:

Grey heather, White, Autumn red, Pumpkin and Sunshine.

The edging is Blue mint to give it a nautical twist- One round of sc followed by one round of hdc.

One Chevron Baby Blanket

Hello people,

For a while I have been addicted to chevron and pink and teal colors and I can’t get enough of it. So I went ahead and made one which is both chevron and pink and teal together. This pattern is really simply and knits up quickly. It is actually meant for a big throw but can be adjusted to fit the size that you need.

The pattern is available on ravelry for free. The only modification I made to the pattern was to use stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch. This made the blanket look little stretched in the side sections a little bit and had to block them before edging. But the pattern looks beautiful and will definitely try other color combinations and contrasts again.

Knitting needles size 7

Crochet hook 4.25mm for edging.
