HELLO IVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE IM TRYING TO KNIT A BABY BLANKET FOR MY FIRST GRANDCHILD AND IF IM READING THE DIRECTIONS RIGHT , I START WITH A ROW OF 15 ACROSS AND 7 HIGH ? DO THAT 35 TIMES BUT HOW DO I ATTACH THE 35 PIECES TOGETHER ? PLEASE HELP THE NEEDLES ARE NOT THAT LONG BUT AM I SAPOSSED TO KNIT THE ENTIRE WIDTH FIRST AND THEN KNIT IT THE LENGHT I NEED ? WILL THE NEEDLES ALLOW FOR THE LENGHT AT ONE TIME?
If you post the pattern instructions, if possible, that might make it easier to help you. Without that, I’ll give it a try…
15 stitches across by 7 rows high? That doesn’t sound like much… maybe you mean 15 by 7 inches? Either way, you can seam squares together. There are videos on this site that can help you learn how to do that. Click on HERE and scroll down to “finishing”.
As for width and length- you’ll cast on a certain number of stitches, that’s the width. Then as you knit across your width, each time you knit all the way across you’ll add a row of length. You’d be surprised how much width you can fit on a needle- the stitches scrunch together really well.
Don’t post the entire instructions as it’s a copyright infringement. You can post just the part you are confused about or better yet, a link if it’s free pattern on the internet.
I should have specified, I did actually mean a link if it was free.
FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT!!! CONGRATULATIONS:woot:
I’m a “first time grandmother” to be too.
Something sounds very confusing in your description. Is this a blanket made of alot of small rectangles? More information on the pattern would definately be helpful!
Or maybe the 15 sts by 7 rows is the gauge for 2" and not the pattern…?
If it’s a blanket that’s knit all in one piece, then you’ll probably want to use a long circular needle to fit all the stitches. You’d still work it back and forth, but you won’t have too many stitches trying to squeeze on the straights.
Is this the one that starts with a provisional cast on? You maybe knit a small square and pick up stitches down one side, pick up from the caston, then back up the other side>
