What should I make with this?

I saw this yarn in michael’s and it said “MAKE ME INTO A BABY BLANKET”

it’s white with pastel green flecks.

Color is Kitty Hawk. It looks like it might knit up a tad bulky though…

My friend is pregnant. Anyone have a blanket pattern in mind that would work with this yarn?

a simple garter stitch would work fine… I wouldn’t try anyting too complicated b/c it’s mohair and it will be a little difficult to see the stitch definition. Maybe add a pattern by knit… Yo. and then knit again. It could add some interest to the baby blanket. but knitting pattern central has OODLES of patterns…:thumbsup: to choose from.

I really don’t think you’d enjoy working with that. Just do yourself a favor and send it to me, save yourself the disappointment.

Always glad to help. :eyes:

:roflhard:

you are so silly XD
:happydance:

I guess I’m looking for something simple eh? Hmm… I still want it to be nice.

I do like the yarn though. It’s fairly soft and machine washable/dryable. Plus, it only cost 2 dollars a ball :wink:

Here is one I like, but I never know how to adjust patterns. This one calls for regular yarn and this yarn I have seems to be light bulky.

I found these, which you might like

(uses Super Bulky yarn, but you could just repeat the pattern to make it the size you want) http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Projects/Print+Ads/LW1417+Angel+Baby.htm

(this basketweave pattern would also be easy to translate to another size yarn/needles) http://www.craftown.com/knit/knit36.htm

(un-stripe this one, if you want, but it’s for chunky weight yarn) http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/freeKnittingPatternDiagonalBabyBlanket.asp

(also uses chunky weight yarn) http://www.joyknits.com/blankie.html

(this is cute, too, but sized for worsted) http://knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babyafheart.htm

oooh, I like that heart one. How would I translate it? Maybe since it’s a light bulk, I can just do like I would for worsted? The yarn’s not too thick, just a tad fuzzy.

To size it for a bulky weight yarn, I’d check your guage and decide how wide you want the blanket. You may need to do only 3 hearts across to get it the size you want. At 135 stitches across, 4 stitches per inch only adds about 4" - you may be happy with a blanket that is 34" wide. At 3.5 stitches per inch, the blanket is 39" wide.

If you did it only 3 hearts across, you’d be talking about 116 stitches, which is 29" if your guage is 4 st/in, and 33" if your guage is 3.5 st/in.

How we know why all those match classes were useful.
