Passap Double Jacquard Diagonal Hearts Baby Blanket


fullsizeoutput_7d7

Okay, after I finished the little stroller blanket I remembered another pattern I had that had hearts in it. It was a pattern that was on a reader sheet that was with my machine when  I bought it so I don’t  know who the author was. Anyway , I took the blocks and made them larger and then arranged in the same configuration as the stroller blanket. I love it even more….or maybe it’s the color. lol I think it would be pretty in aqua and also one in yellow. Don’t know if I would do in blue for a boy but maybe change the design in the blocks. Maybe a teddy bear or a train.

The blocks are larger and so is the blanket. The finished measurement of this one is 29 inches in width and 30 inches in length. Feel free to make this even larger  if you want. I put this pattern file in the same folder as the stroller blanket and a small written pdf file telling you to cast on 156 stitches and 142 rows(568 knitted rows). I also put in a bmp, png and tif file. Check the design on the tif file since my computer said something about the file being larger the way I converted it.

I was in a hurry to get a good picture in the daylight so you can see I have waste yarn at the top and there is a strand of yarn across the left front . lol

Here are the directions and files in my drop box. The files are called Double Jacquard diagonal hearts blanket

I am thinning my files of knitted items and I came across this pattern that I made years ago on the brother machine.  It is in News & Views April 1988. The designer is Sandra Dominiak. I put the design into win/crea and then chose a size to make and added a border. I really like how it came out. I don’t know if it is the design or the soft color. The color is mauve and off white. I am getting into quilting and this reminds me of a quilt block. lol

I have the instructions and the file in bmp, tiff and png format if you would like to try this. The drop box link is below the sock picture . Feel free to open in win/crea or DAK and make it larger or smaller. This stroller blanket is 23 inches wide by 26 inches long.

A little while back I did knit two pairs of slipper socks in CanCun on the Brother 940 for a woman who was recovering from a hip transplant.It was at Easter time that I visited her so I thought I would do Easter colors.
