Love the delicate and lacey design of this baby blanket. I usually am not a fan of knitted blankets and prefer crochet instead, but this blankets stich design is too pretty to not like. In the description of the yarn weight it shows the yarn to be a (6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky and that it uses Universal Yarn Bella Chenille. This yarn does not have the look of a super bulky weight yarn judging by the picture.

I am usually not a fan of bully yarn for baby blankets but this pattern makes it look light and airy. They are making better chenille yarns now so they should work with this. The pattern is not that hard so it should knit up quickly. I made a big granny square blanket with chenille and the person I made it for loved it. I have been making a lot of baby blankets so this will be added to the list. Thank you.

This pattern is beautiful but I have a question about the yarn. I knit with Chenille once a couple years ago and when I finished the yarn kept working itself into big loops. I'm not sure if that makes since, but it was like someone had pulled a large snag in it, but no one had. It did it in several places. Is there a way to avoid this or did I do something wrong? I love the feel of the chenille but have been afraid to use it since this experience.

I've seen this happen with chenille yarn when it is joined incorrectly, you can't use a regular join like magic knot with chenille yarn, you have to sew the ends together with a needle and thread. There are youtube videos on how to do this, it will only seem like a pain to do the first time, but after you realize there are only a beginning end and an ending end to darn it when you're finished it's great!

Am I missing something cause I don't see a row 6. What is row 6 supposed to be. Please help thank you

Rows 2,4 6 are purl.

I have been knitting just under 2 years now and have somehow managed not to knit a blanket. My friend is having a christening in a couple of weeks for her son and has asked me to knit her a white blanket to go around the christening gown as it's still a bit chilly and I think this might just be the perfect pattern! Has anyone tried it? Does it take long to do?

Why am I coming out with 1 less stitch after the 2nd row? I have redone this 3 times and still have less stitches.

Double check your yo's doing these after or before a decrease can cause the yo loop to be lost in the knitting.

Your blanket is absolutely beautiful simorg 4760307 and its bound to be an heirloom. Thank you for sharing your success and inspiring the rest of us.

I love the pattern! I used a very light-weight yarn, chose the colour white (for christening) and added a few more 'vines' to make the 1 meter width. Thanks very much for such a lovely pattern.

what does sew down ends mean and how do you do this

Sew down ends is actually the correct way of joining and finishing ends with chenille yarn. You need to have a needle and thread to match yarn, you lay one end over the other, so they overlap for an inch and half and you use the needle and thread to sew through both thicknesses all the way up the inch and half of yarn, I always pull on them firmly to make sure they are well joined before I continue on. It sounds harder than it is, but it creates an invisible join between two balls of chenille and to finish you are only doing the beginning and ending end and you're done.

does "pm" in a pattern mean place marker? Think I figured out my question....

Hey there, skplummer! You are very correct, "pm" means "place marker!" We will go back and update the pattern with abbreviations to avoid further confusion. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

on the soft vines baby blanket, the "pm" mentioned in the instructions means what? I just am not sure what that is suppose to mean?


What does ssk mean

HI mllforestcreek 0697267, ssk = slip, slip, knit. To do this, work to the place where the decrease is to be made. Slip the next 2 stitches, one at a time as if to knit, to the right needle. Insert the left needle into the fronts of these two stitches and knit them together. One stitch is decreased. Hope this helps. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
