A Blanket is Born

I had the privilege of casting on and knitting on a new Oddball Preemie Blanket. "Summer Blossoms" began with Bernat Baby Softee (Tutti Frutti) on size 6 circular needles.

I cast on 100 stitches and knit the required garter stitch border. Then I knit a pattern, new to me. Sorry, I don't even know the name of the pattern.

Row 1: K

Row 2: K 3 (border stitches), Purl all stitches until 3 stitches remain, K 3 (border stitches)

Row 3: K 3 (border stitches), * K 1, P1* (repeat between *s to last 4 stitches), K 4

Row 4: Same as row 2

I repeated this pattern until the blanket measured four inches. Now, "Summer Blossoms" is ready for the next knitter.

Where will it go?

Update: August 2008
Summer Blossoms is close to being completed. It still needs another section and an edging.


I had yarn left from the skein Sandy sent to me, so I used the rest to start another blanket for the group.

I named this blanket, "Cotton Candy."

  1. It's precious. I love that yarn. Our wish our Wal-Mart carried it. I recently finished working on the Angel Kisses Oddball Preemie blanket. I think I enjoyed it more than the full sized Oddball blanket, since it's a quicker knit.


I love comments!
