Here is a shot as we just keep repeating those last twelve rows until we get the blanket almost the size we want it.
When you are about sick of knitting this thing and you want to pull your hair out and swear you will never knit another blanket, repeat rows 1-6 and then bind off.
And no, if u just started this blanket,you aren't there yet. ;0)
We are moving right along now. Your first ten rows are finished and it is looking good!
Here is a picture of the next six rows added on. And the pattern:
R11: K6 *P7: K3 to last 6 sts, K6
R12: Knit across
Repeat these two rows 2 times more.
Now it's starting to take shape.
The first ten rows are on.
I always get antzy when I pit on the first row. Especially when I have this many sts. It's always great when you get there and realize you don't have to frog.
So,here we go off at a snails pace!
R1: K3, P3, K7, P3, to last 3 sts, K3
R2: And all even numbered rows,K
Repeat R's 1&2 4 times more.
Any easy way to keep up with your rows is when you have finished all ten rows you will have 5 ridges in your K7 sections,on your right side row.
If anyone is knitting along,post a pic of your progress.
The yarn is bought for Ma'Leah's blanket. I chose this yarn for a couple or reasons.
One, it is machine washable. Mothers nowadays don't have the time to have to hand wash anything. And as often as babies things need washing,well,this was the most sensible solution.
Second,this was the prettiest and softest yarn Wally World had that I liked.
Now it's time to CO.
With my size 8 needles,I will he casting on 179 sts.
