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

Passap Knitted Mary Jane Booties


Mary Jane Booties Made on the Passap

Mary Jane Booties Made on the Passap

How cute is this???? My friend Jacqui in Arizona sent me this hand out for these adorable little booties. Now I know I am a complainer but there are no complaints on this bootie! I did not put the button or flower on the strap yet because I could not wait to share this with you.

This pattern is an altered version from Kathe Keck’s Passap Workshop. I just used 2 strands of 2/24 for trying this out. The pattern is for E 6000 and DM 80. The pattern has detailed instructions and terms used are on the last page. There was only one spot that was unclear but upon reading the next line it explained. When you get to the part at the toe and start decreasing, you will decrease one stitch on both beds both sides. When you do the second decrease, that is where it tells you that. This was fun to make and now I want to do an afghan with these booties to go with it. These would look cute with a scalloped cast on also.

Oh, the strap is not knitted in the bootie. It is separate and makes it look all the more authentic.

Here are the instructions in my drop box. You can thank Jacqui for this. lol 🙂

Passap Baby Buggy Baby Afghan


DSCF6184

I was playing around scanning pictures again.  I came up with this design for a baby afghan based on the picture of the baby buggy from an afghan in a magazine years ago. The colors are light pink and aqua though it looks more blue in the picture. My passap was knitting beautifully while I knitted this I might add. 🙂

I am sharing the pattern and the directions and you can do what you want to this. I think the buggy should be wider and I corrected it and there is a file in the drop box called wider baby buggy. Download both and you will see the difference in the pictures. I am not unhappy with this but the wider one will look better. Make this your own by changing the colors, borders , size or personalize it. You can also make the buggy a solid color . This is a good time to play around in win/crea or the other design programs if you are new at this.

I happen to really like the size of these for babies. They don’t take a whole pound of yarn and are not huge.  The finished size on this is 31 wide by 35 long and it weighs 12 ounces. If you want to make it a large one just add the columns to 189 stitches and more rows to make 250.

Here is the link for the pattern and directions.
