Robot Blanket

Filed under: knitting — Kristin @ 11:06 pm

I made this Robot Blanket (based on the Robot Hat) for Owen. The yarn is Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice 100% acrylic in Kelly Green (172), Espresso (127), and Beige (123). It was knit on US 9 needles. I duplicate stitched the robots on instead of knitting them in because it presents a slightly neater back with less loops for little fingers to get stuck in.

Baby Yoda Sweater

Filed under: knitting — Kristin @ 11:40 pm

I made the Baby Yoda Sweater [pdf] for a friend’s baby that will arrive in March. It was knit from Mission Falls 1824 Cotton 100% cotton in color #303 on US 6 needles. The size is 0-6 months. I changed the inside ties to crochet chains instead of i-cords since I thought the cords would be too bulky.

I made Ruby for Macy.   The yarn is Lion Brand Microspun 100% micro-fiber acrylic in Ebony (153) and Lily White (100), and Patons Brilliant 69% acrylic / 31% polyester in Radiant Red (4942).  They were knit on size US 3 and US 6 needles.  I made the 6-9 month size.  I didn’t like the ridge on the sole the 3-needle bind off left the first time I made these, so this time I just grafted the edges together instead.

Big Bad Baby Blanket

Filed under: knitting — Kristin @ 6:02 pm

I made the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch ‘N Bitch for Julia’s new baby to be born in June. The yarn is Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino 100% merino wool in colorway #P436. I had 4 skeins each of 2 different dyelots so since the pattern called for holding 2 strands together throughout, I just held one of each dyelot. It was knit on US 9 needles.
