Really lovely, Rita. I'm sure the mom will love it.

Is the pattern one you designed? Are you selling it or posting it anywhere? I'd love to make one, but couldn't design my way out of my driveway.

Thanks so much . The pattern is just made up of a plain Mock cable stitch . I do not have it written down . If you would like i can write it down for you.:)

Hi,
Well, I got the yarn, printed out the pattern, have my needles and I'm sitting here now wondering how many YOU cast on for your blanket, lol! I know you say multiplies of 5 plus 2, but it is hard to figure out by looking at the picture, can you get back to me as soon as you get this...in the mean time I'll start to cast on, LOL!

Knit a sample. CO a bunch of sts (20-30) and knit a couple rows, then start the stitch pattern. Work for about 2-3 inches, figure out how many sts/inch you have. Multiply that by how many inches you want and include some edge sts.

Thanks Sue, I had gotten as far as 70 sts, lol, so I ripped them back and I'm starting now, Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

Sue,
I did all four rows of the pattern and it looks good, but I'm worried that I might not be doing the yarn over from a purl stitch correctly

When I'm done with the purl stitch the yarn is in front. Am I lifting the yarn over the needle and around so the yarn is back in front and then purl again?
Thanks,
Jen

Hi Jen ! Sorry i have not been on . I did not think this thread would surface again lol.
After a purl stitch you have to wrap the yarn around the needle for the YO . :)
Also I cast on 192 st on mine. I wanted it bigger . And the pattern makes the blanket look smaller ,that is why i added so many stitches .
Good luck :)

I'm new to this party, and just ran across this thread. Wow, that's beautiful! Thanks for the instructions, also. It wasn't what I expected from looking at the finished product! Looks pretty, not too hard to do.

I see you said you used 192 stitches - what were the finished measurements? (Sorry if you said and I missed it!)

I'm making scarves, and this pattern would be beautiful on a scarf as well!

Wow, you must have used tiny yarn and needles! I printed out the directions with pictures, and I'm so anxious to try the stitch. I'm sitting at my desk at home because I work from home, and I have to WORK and get my mind off of knitting!!

Anyway, thanks again. I just found this forum, and I'm like a little kid in a really big candy store! So much to look at, so much to knit, so little time!

I used DK yarn weight yarn which is very popular hear in the UK.
I would think if you are going to use worsted then you can cast on a lot less .
Welcome to the forum :) you will always have something to do when you are on here :)

I've got it going in a boy/girl color for the new little one expected in August.

The pattern is not at all hard, and if you run into any snags, our mods and others can help you out.
