PATTERN UPDATE: Sundry Baby Blanket

Sundry Baby Blanket

After a few months of working on version 3 – this pattern has been updated! I don’t have everything I updated on this pattern but I do know a few things where missing & a few things where repeated. I have added the missing parts & removed the repeated parts. The updated PDf was over the limit you could upload to Ravelry so I broke it down to 6 parts. Each PDF starts with pdf#_ This lets you know in which order they go in. I hope this also helps with data usage – so you only have to download a smaller PDF for whatever part of the blanket you are working with instead of the whole PDF which is far larger. Eventually there will be a text only PDF – the only photo for that PDF will be of the pattern picture showing what the pattern is. Please go to you Ravelry Library & update or buy it now.

How I Selvedge

On all my flat knitting patterns there is a selvedge edging. This makes it look nicer as well as easier to crochet through the edging. I thought I would show you how my selvedge works.

We will start on the right side (beginning of a row) then go to the left side (end of the row) of the sample. I hope this helps with any questions you have with my patterns.


Begining (Right Side) Of The Row

HoW I Selvedge
Here I show you how I start the row. I put the right hand (empty needle) in this way through the stitch. I am not sure if you would consider this tbl (through back loop) or not.

HoW I Selvedge
This is how it looks from the front before knitting the stitch.

HoW I Selvedge
This is how it looks from the top/back before knitting the stitch. See how the working yarn is to the left of the stitch? This is how it is supposed to be.


End (Left Side) Of The Row

HoW I Selvedge
This is how the end of the row looks when you put the yarn in front before you slip the next stitch (wyif).

HoW I Selvedge
This is how the row looks when the yarn is in front and the next stitch is slipped. You can see the working yarn is in front of the last stitch. After this you turn the piece and start all over again from the right side.


Pictures Of How The Sides Look With The Selvedge

HoW I Selvedge
This shows you how the selvedge sides look from the sides (I folded the piece so that the sides could be shown side by side). You can see they look the same as the top of crochet stitches.

This is how the selvedge sides look on the front and back of the work.

Monkey Socks Are Finally Done!

I finally finished my Monkey socks today! It’s taken a long time to get them done. I started them on April 8, 2017 according the my Ravelry project page. Knitting socks just don’t call to me like they used to a few years ago. One day I will also get a decent cast off for toe up socks figured out. Or make Jennys Stretchy Bind off look really good. One of the two.

Horrible picture I know. It will do though.
