Since I am subscribed to Interweave Knit for the last 3-5 years, I saw a couple of these patterns, but love having these all in one set. Can't wait to get started on one or two. Thank you.

I have been knitting the cat from the Knitted Cuddlies pattern and I can't find the section for the HEAD! Is it missing from the instructions???

Oh, I forgot to mention: the pattern calls for knitting the lace border SEPARATELY, and sewing it on. NO WAY. Cast on the blankie using a provisional cast-on, and DO NOT bind off when the center square is complete. Instead, finish with a right-side row, and use a long circular needle to pick up stitches down the left side (right side facing), knit on the bottom live stitches and remove waste yarn, and pick up stitches up the right side. Provisionally cast on enough stitches for the lace border, and finish every other row of border by knitting the last stitch of border together with a picked-up stitch on the blankie. Continue all round, mitering the corners as you reach them. When you get all the way around the blanket, graft end of border to beginning and YOU ARE DONE. Who wants to sew on the border? It will block much more beautifully doing it the way I describe. Take the time to chart out your lace border, and pick up enough stitches along the sides to get a multiple of the border reps. Fudge if you need to; it will be an elastic edge. Keep on with the patt at corners; just don't knit the last stitch of border together with a blanket stitch EVERY time; do it every other time, or every third time, to make it lie flat.

I have every issue of Interweave Knits, including the Premier Issue. The Starlight baby blanket appeared in an issue from years back, and I knitted it up in a gorgeous shade of deep Atlantic Ocean blue--not sky, and definitely not navy. It was a real challenge, on US size 2 needles, with the star lace motifs on both right and wrong side! I was amazed how quickly I was able to complete it, because I just couldn't get enough. It was the first time I picked up and knitted on a perpendicular lace border (even mitered corners!) Once I wet-blocked it on a bed sheet spread out on the floor, with about a million pins, my mouth just fell open, because it turned out so beautifully. It's an heirloom, and truly knit from a single strand of fingering weight yarn (I spliced in each new skein). It was very well received. Don't be deterred by the challenging work, or tiny needles. I plan to knit another, and it will now be "child's play." It is a skill builder and will do you proud!

Has anyone else tried to find the Kolibri cotton yarn for Barnyard Booties? I can't seem to find it sold anywhere. Does anyone know a similar substitute?

Love patterns, especially the Star Light Star Bright blanket, but had problems downloading them. Having eventually achieved that, I became so excited when I saw the blanket in close detail that I leapt off the chair! When I printed patterns off, however, charts weren't included in the print, so will have to do them by hand. Sure it'll be worth it in the end! Thanks again for such lovely patterns, Kath, South Wales, UK.

Thanks so much. I am working with the Knit-A-Square project and we need easy patterns to make hats and sweaters for AIDS orphans in Africa. I was just ready for some new patterns. Mostly we knit or crochet 8" X 8" squares that are mailed to South Africa and made into blankets. I will be able to use the hat pattern for a square also. Love your newsletter!
