Maybe you can help me with this pattern from...well....you know where Sounds super easy, but let me tell you I have started this blanket over 3 times now!! You:
Cast on 146
Garter Stitch 10 rows
and the the pattern proceeds as
K10 * K2tog (3 times) YO, K1 (6 times) K2tog (3 times)* K10
Repeat until desired length
Ok, easy right?! Then way has mine turned out like this each time??
Now I did reduce the CO to 100 becasue 146 was WAY to big for a baby blanket! You could lose a baby in that thing! So I CO 100 the I did a garter stich border of 10 on either size so I have 80 stiches in the middlef or the pattern itself.
Oh yeah, by the way my name is Charlotte I'm a run away from the Jan 06 board and I have been kniiting for a little over a year. We had a kintting shop open in our town and a girlfriend of mine thought it would be fun to take some classes. Poor teacher though, I was 8 months preggo when I started the class and I think she has since made a rule "no Preggos" in the starter classes :oops: I can't tell you how many times I cried over a dropped stitch. I would have liked to blame it on hormones, but I still do it
