Hi All, please can you help…
I am new to knitting and attempting to knit a baby blanket (I’m due in 8 weeks!) but am confused about the pattern and seed stitch. The picture looks as if there are alternating squares making up the blanket.
The pattern tells me:
cast on 121
Seed stitch row: P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to end
Rep this row 3 times more
Then cont in patt as follows:
Row 1: seed stitch 3, knit 23, seed 23, knit 23, seed 23, knit 23, seed 3
Row 2: seed stitch 3, purl 23, seed 23, purl 23, seed 23, purl 23, seed 3
These 2 rows set the patt
Work a further 28 rows
seed 26, knit 23, seed 23, knit 23, seed 26
seed 26, purl 23, seed 23, purl 23, seed 26
work in pattern as set
Repeat rows 1-60 twice more
Work 4 rows seed stitch
I’ve done up to Row 31 am confused on 2 counts…
Row 31 - the first and last set of seed stitches started purl and ended knit… (all previously have started and ended purl) Do I start Row 32 with a purl or knit??
Rows 33-60 - do I repeat rows 31 & 32? or do I go back to rows 1-30??
Please can someone guide me - it’s taken me a week solid to get this far!! I just hope I can finish this before the baby arrives!
