Little hearty baby blanket - FREE KNITTING PATTERN

My first "bigger" project this year!
After long searching on the Internet I came up with my own design for baby blanket!

The plan was to make 5 by 7 squares (50cm X 70 cm) to use it as a throw over in buggy but somehow I managed to make it 4 by 5 squares. The pregnant brain makes tricks.
Well, maybe one day I have to rip edging from one side (top or bottom) and add a few square rows.

It looks "right side" from both sides, includes only knit and purl stitches, very simple.
Yarn used: Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk, a bit more than 3 balls for this tiny blanky. 
(As an alternative DROPS yarn group B yarns can be used: DROPS Merino Extra Fine, DROPS Cotton Merino … Choose your favourite yarns here: )
Needles 3 mm (I knit loosely). 

A FREE PATTERN is available (please give me credit and link back to this post):
The pattern in English.

Make sure, you knit your own sample square and measure it. You might have to change the pattern if your stitches are taller.

Close-up detail and The Man himself:


A little addition to my dream list:


Fell in love with this classical beauty ...
Pattern is in Vogue Knitting Holiday 2006 #15
and also available to buy from vogue knitting website.

Dyeing your own yarn!

Handcraft people have crazy ideas!

If your children have some dried out felt tip pens (markers) there is great way to recycle them before throwing them out!

Would you like to have yarn like this?

It's easy!

Break the markers open and put the color filled piece into the jar big enough for yarn as well.
Soak them in the water till all color came out!
Look the pictures in kriuks2 blog.
Insert yarn (natural not acrylics).
Put the jars into big casserole pot filled with water.
Simmer about 1hr. Add vinegar (1tablespoon per jar)simmer 1/2h more.
Let it cool down. Rinse.

I have not tried it myself but others have done great job with it!

It's a similar to dyeing with Kool-Aid .
