I have a French that saw some wristwarmers I designed (they’re a lace edging pattern that I increased the number of stitches in garter stitch on one side to make the arm part) and asked me if I could make a baby blanket with that edging for her for a baby boy due around January.
Lace Edge Pattern
Row 1: k2, k2tog, yo, k2, yo 2x, k1 = 9 sts
Row 2: k1, (in 2 yo) k1, k1tbl, k2tog, yo, k4 = 9 sts
Row 3: k2, k2tog, yo, k5 = 9 sts
Row 4: BO 2, k2tog, yo, k4 = 7 sts
I’d love to do this for her, but I’m not sure how to do this exactly. I want to make the blanket in one piece, as I’m not that great at seaming.
Is there a way to work the pattern on one side, work across the bulk of the blanket, and flip the pattern around to make it work, or is this just too hard? I really want to avoid seaming if it is at all possible.
