WARM WAFFLES BABY BLANKET
SIZE: 32 x 38 inches
Worsted weight yarn 14.5 ounces
With circular needle, cast on 114 sts.
The only reason for circulars is to hold the number of stitches, it would be nearly impossible on regular needles.
I do almost all of my knitting on circular needles, for me it is so much easier on the hands.
If you want to change colors I would suggest changing at the side. But that said it isn't something I would do.
just got this pattern and it's lovely thank you for this pattern I am going to do it wider am I right in talking it up by 3 St's to keep pattern right
i am knitting this blanket and it is beautiful i took it up by 21 St's to make it wider and it is lovely i am making it for my best friends daughter who is having a baby girl , could you tell me do you have any other patterns
As a beginner knitter in Australia, I am loving the simplicity of this beautiful pattern and making something handmade for my third child, thank you for sharing the pattern :-) I had to Google 'worsted yarn' as I had no idea what that meant LOL. Sounds like it equates to 10 ply(?) but that was unavailable in my two local craft stores, so I am using an 8 ply yarn (70/30 wool/alpaca blend, deliciously soft!) Bought 11 x 50gm balls of yarn, total yarn weight 550gm or 19.4oz. I cast on 150 stitches with 5mm (US size 8) circular needle, width of blanket approx 77cm or 30in. I will cast on slightly more next time to get closer to 32in. Hope all those numbers may help anyone else having to resort to alternate materials from the pattern :-) Thanks again! Asha C-B.
Did you use size 10 needles for the hat as well? I'm planning on knitting s hat as soon as i finish the blanket.
Thank you and I'd love to see a picture!
