Hi, I need a border pattern for my never finished baby blanket. Now I've come back to it I cannot find the pattern.
The blanket is in Double Knit and measures 20" x 30" and has a raised leaf pattern made up of 4 individual triangles sewn together to make squares. The squares were then sewn together to make up the blanket.
I'm after a fairly simple pattern as I am still learning and just easing myself back into knitting. If photo required I can provide one, just email me.
Hi, as a follow up I found the pattern to buy, it's http://www.sirdar.co.uk/designs/babiesDesigns/shawlsblankets/3806
I just need the pattern for the border though as I have finished the blanket.
The border reminds me of this one (click on third small picture from left): http://www.karensvariety.com/CopyPatternBooks/Accessories/Beehive55.htm I just found it on eBay too.
free, but you'd have to figure out how to attach it: http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/leaf-edge-baby-hat.htm
different, but nice: http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/baby/lace.htm
HI Richard UK
How are you in the UK? Oz down under is Cold!!!
I have been desparately trying to get this pattern for the entire blanket, which I believe is SIrdar 3806.. and no one here in OZ seems to have it. I even tried Ebay... and no luck. Is there any chance that you could scan the pattern in for me, that you have. I am happy to send you my email addy.. and I am happy to pay you for it. This is not for profit .. just for my own personnal use. I believe it originated from a Beehive 1957 pattern.. and it looks really lovely. I was hoping to make it really large and turn it into a bedspread for our own use.
If you or anyone else can assist I would really appreciate it! I am like you an "average" knitter and use it as "stress therapy"
Thanking you very much!
Hi Anne, swap you Oz for Uk anyday, been a good 4yrs since i was Down Under last. Yes no problem to scan it in and send to you, all free gratis :-) as I wouldn't dream of asking for anything. Drop me your email address directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (Please REMOVE the underscore from the start of the address, I have added them only so web spiders don't pick up my true address and send me yet even more spam!) . Or alternatively post here but I don't always come back here regularly.
The pattern I have is very very similar (if not the same) to the one I originally posted above as my wife remembered which shop we got it from and as the lady is a good friend I got a new copy free too :-)
The one I have is Patons 4219 and you can see at: http://www.mcadirect.com/shop/patons-pattern-4219-pram-covers-and-cushion-cover-p-2394.html
Will email you soon as I get your email address.
Hi Carol, I never got an auto email from knitting daily to say you'd replied to my post so I missed it and have since got the pattern. Many thanks for what was a very quick reply though. Much appreciated.
A Happy Edging
A friend of mine just finished a garter stitch baby blanket and when my knitting group saw the finished product we decided it needed a border of some sort.
My friend didn't want a plain garter border, so I pulled out the new Harmony Guide, Knit Edgings and Trims: 150 Stitches, and we looked through it and found the perfect border: Garter Stitch Points. (When the blanket is finished, I'll post a photo.)
Here's the pattern in case you have a garter stitch blanket that's lonley for its perfect border.
Worked from bottom edge upwards.Ends with multiple of 13 sts.Note: Each point is worked separately and then joined on one row.
Cast on 2 sts.1st row: K2.2nd row: Yo, k2. (3sts)3rd row: Yo, k3. (4sts)4th row: Yo, k4. (5sts)5th row: Yo, k5. (6sts)6th row: Yo, k6. (7sts)7th row: Yo, k7. (8sts)8th row: Yo, k8. (9sts)9th row: Yo, k9. (10sts)10th row: Yo, k10. (11 sts)11th row: Yo, k11. (12 sts)12th row: Yo, k12. (13 sts)
1st to 12th rows form one point. Cut yarn and leave finished point on needle. On the same needle, cast on 2 sts and work 2nd point. Cont this way until there are as many points as required.Do not cut yarn after completing the last point, but turn and knit across all points on needle. Work 9 rows in garter stitch. These 21 rows form the edging.Bind off or cont as required.Weave in loose ends.
