I’m a newbie to this site.
I taught myself to knit last year while I was off work, using You Tube videos.
So far, I’ve made a baby hat/booties, a Robin Hood hat, a toy elephant, dino mittens, and a hat for my brother that was a disaster (my family think it should be made into a tea cosy ).
I’m currently working on a Minnie Mouse hat (hoping it fits this time), and planning to make a baby dress, and baby blanket
I love working on projects!
I’m still trying to figure out the different types of yarn, for different projects, and I’ve played around with a couple of cast ons (long tail cast on, Italian cast on, brioche, and a picot edge). I’m sure I’ve got a very long way to go. I love how the world (and my thoughts) disappear while I’m knitting. I find it really calming.
I do have a question about a baby blanket, that I’ve posted under general questions. My cousin’s 1yr old loves her blanket, that looks as though it’s crocheted, with big holes across the pattern that she loves wrapping her fingers through. I couldn’t find anything similar in a knit pattern, though I’ve found some crochet patterns that would work. Only, I cannot crochet beyond making a chain. Is there any way of converting a crochet pattern to a knit pattern?
Here’s the link to a crochet blanket pattern that is found. (Sorry for the long post)
