Rock A Bye Baby!

Here's A Blankee for You and You and You!

Bonda and I have been BZ-Blankee Knitters! Bonda knits the Body and I Crochet the Edging.

Preemie Blankets are our focus as an August deadline nears. These TinyBlankees (18x24 inches) are donated to the local hospitals by The Fiber Arts Guild of West Texas...of which I am a member.

Bonda & Sue's Bond Pattern

Setup Bond with Plate #4 (worsted weight) and 60 Needles. Cast On with Waste Yarn...Knit 4 rows. Switch to Main Color (sample-cream). Knit 110 Rows. Switch to Waste Yarn...Knit 4 Rows. Remove from Bond.

Crochet Edge... Size G Hook - Right Side - With Main Color pickup and Single Crochet corner stitch Main Color off waste yarn. Pickup and SC each stitch across (60 sc). Remove Waste Yarn. Make 3 sc in corner and at each corner around. SC in knitted stitches down the side, across the remaining end and up the other side. Slip Stitch at beginning and change to edging color. Do edging of your choice. The blue edging is a combination of Half Double and Double done in the back loop. The outer edging is a chain with single crochet over the chain.
Knitting for Babies started with Knitted Sweaters to go with the Baby Quilts that I have made. Baby Animals, embroidery blocks in Attic Windows, is custom machine quilted. The sweater is the easy Five Hour Baby Sweater with a few SuCrochet Touches.
The Pink Quilt was made from scraps left over from my First Grand's Baby Quilt and it is HandQuilted. The Sweet Pink Feather and Fan pattern is from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. It, too has SuCrochet Touches. Both of these Sweet Sets are for Future GreatGrands.
