Gingham pattern/square sequence
I saw a knitted gingham pattern the other day, can't remember where but it used 2 colors, white and blue. Anyway, it used 2 strands of white, 2 strands of blue, and 2 strands of 1 blue and 1 white. I need to find a pattern for this that shows the color sequence for the strips that makes it look like gingham. Any help appreciated... Thanks, Mary

Well, I found this link, but there's no picture so I'm not sure how acccurate it could be since it only uses 2 colors - for a gingham you'd need either 3 or do it your way using 2 strands combined to get your 3 colors.

Can you just look at a piece of gingham fabric - here's one
http://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashio...oyal-blue.aspx and then get the color seqeunce for the squares and make up up yourself.

This crochet blanket shows mixing the two colours together to get gingham checks. http://www.crochetville.org/forum/sh...270#post818270
or here is a different method for similar effect.

I'm going to have to print these out and save them for future reference - they've just given me a great idea for a gift for my sister. She is a baby-blue-gingham-fanatic. She alwyas uses gingham gift wrap, ribbons, etc. I can see a cute little knit gingham tote bag/purse in her future.....

I just wanted to make a rug, mercy, the possibilities are endless. Gingham is such a timeless fabric! Thanks so much for input!
