My apologies to all for this newsletter being late.
Our email server was experiencing problems last night.

 

****Correction to first stitch pattern is provided here.****

Sorry Folks- it was a rough night!

There is an asterisk before the K2, p2 on row 2:

Row 2 of the first stripe is K6, sm, p1, *(k2, p2): repeat from * to last 9 sts, k2, p1, sm, k6.

Our Sampler Baby Blanket KAL

Its DONE!!!!!

Better Photos Coming-
but many thanks to Cindy for this late night fast picture!
And thanks to the TKE staff for designing this beauty!
Our Sampler Baby Blanket KAL is now ready to go! Cindy just finished the blanket, and we are all so proud at how great it looks! Come see it tomorrow at The Knitter‘s Edge. We knit ours with 3–100g balls of Encore Worsted.
Go the the Encore Worsted Colorcard to pick out a nice solid color!
There are 9 horizontal pattern stripes. Each stripe has been designed by one of our staff. The baby size blanket is 24″ x 28″ and takes just 3 —100g balls (600 yards) of a worsted weight yarn- Encore, Comfort, Weekend or Neve. I will later enlarge the
pattern for a adult size throw.
So please pick out your yarn now and check your gauge (18 sts =4″ over st st).
The first stripe pattern is downloadable in this newsletter!! The next stripe pattern (stripe #2) will be in Fridays newsletter. I may speed it up after that and release 2 patterns in each newsletter. This is a fast project.
We strongly suggest you choose one of these three yarns: Encore Worsted, Comfort Worsted, or Neve Cotton. Our blanket was knit in Encore Worsted-
3 balls of color 1231- Pale Greenhouse.

Stripe #1- Annette’s Rib by JoAnne

An easy to work ribbing that lays flat. and does not pull in. One side is all knit, while the other side is k2/p2. This 16 row stripe is worked after the 10 row garter stitch border. There are 4 garter stitch rows between each stripe.
