Blue Sky Fibers Worsted Cotton
none left in stash
6 skeins = 900.0 yards (823.0 meters), 600 grams

so, so happy I did this bind off on a purl row:
It allowed it to stay in the pattern quite nicely.

Materials Needed
40 oz. 4-ply worsted weight yarn for large afghan

size 10 circular needles

For large afghan cast on 210 sts, for a small one cast on 144 sts. Pattern is a multiple of 11 sts + 1.

Row 1: K1, yo, k3, k2 tog, k2 tog, k3, yo, k1. Repeat from to end.

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: Knit

Repeat rows 1-3 until desired length. Cast off on purl row to keep shape.

“This pattern goes fast and is easy to remember.”
-- Margaret Roosevelt

I plan on working on this on and off between projects until Feb :)

Call me superstitious… I am done minus binding off about 3 stitches… I am afraid to finish it completely b/c then my baby may think it’s time to come and I am not ready! :) So I will bind off those last 3 stitches when I feel ready.. or my water breaks…

2/2016 My son lost his special blanket :(
