[color=violet][b]I am knitting a Grandmother Favorite with Heart dishcloth, and expanding it to a 10" square out of Worsted Weight Acrylic yarn for a blanket on size 9 U.S. needles.
My problem is knitting the heart in the expanded pattern, so that it will come out correctly. It started great on the increases. I had increased it to 52 stitches just like I did for the plain Grandmother’s Favorite below, which turned out perfect, but when I started to decrease is where I went into trouble. I am not getting the curves right, don’t know how many rows before the V part of the heart starts, and messing up on the rows.
When I did the Grandmother’s Favorite 52 stitches came out to be perfect for a 10" square on size 9 U.S. needles with the same yarn.
Here’s how I did it…
When I knitted the Grandmother’s Favorite (plain one) I used the 9’s and I had to knit it to 52 stitches to get the 10" square. That is how I know that I had to increase the rows for the Grandmother’s Favorite with Heart too, so that means that the rows would have to change. What I did was increase row 36 5 times (16,18, 20, 22, 24) to get the 52 stitches, but when I started to decrease starting with row 38, and changing the number to 9-26, 8-28, 7-?, and that part is where I messed up. I need someone to help me by modifying the pattern, so that I can knit it.
