This item is now finished and a new thread has been started HERE
The squares are:
FISH- This pattern is suppose to flatten out the fish for a whole blanket of fishies, but they were still puffy which is what I wanted anyway. However line 26 of the pattern is incorrect and should read:
Slip, SSK, K1, KFB, SSK, KFB, K1, K2TOG, K1
(the row that follows this correction is the "Slip, K10" row)
SUN- Somehow the pattern got off. Was it me? Maybe. Anyway I did a little scribbly thing in the orange to fill in the extra space near the top of the pattern. Definitely do in the different color.
SAILBOAT- WOW, definitely like the way this came out with the differenct colors. Next time straighten out the angle on the front of the boat though.
DINOSAUR (Stegosaurus)- I cannot for the life of me find the link again to the actual pattern. My printed copy has http://knitted-kitty-creations.com but when I go there I can't find this FREE pattern. Again I made a few changes to it anyway.
Frog - I changed it a tad to make him a little plumper
HORSE- Modified from the original to the head is up more
HOUSES- Easy pattern. Didn't have to change anything.
TEAM LOGOS- Red Wings, Pistons, U of M, Tigers, Lions (my own)
SHEEP (Bobbles the SheeP) (changed it a bit)
MOON & STARS - Do pattern in different colors next time
ABC/123- My own, but didn't turn out as good as I'd have liked... I may have to do something about that.) Looks way better after "duplicate" stitching on some color. Update: did the dup stitch as best I could with purls on RS... looks good though
The finished piece is knitted as one piece rather than doing all that seaming. It will use 7 different colors and be made up of 12 squares with different stuff in each square and quite likely have an outer border if I can figure out how to do that and get it done before the baby shower on Oct 14!
