I have been knitting a favourite pattern of mine. My MIL first made it when I had my daughter 29 1/2 years ago and I have been making it ever since for all the sweet little girls.
It is out of a Patons book no. R. 26
This pattern is so easy for me. I can make it in 2 solid days of knitting. It's all in one piece with only about 2" of sewing up to do... Once you have the pattern set up its all falls into place and easy to follow.
Then I tried this pattern.
This was a different story... Although it is still cute.
It's not as easy as it looks. I am glad it is all garter st as you can't tell which is the right and wrong sides. I got mixed up a bit... It is done in one piece with lots of starts and stops and joining in yarn. I found that the border was hard on my hands. I am glad it's done and it will be one of a kind. Can't see myself making it again...
