Two Finished Objects for the Price of One
This is the blanket draped over a chair. I promised the pattern, it is still pretty rough, so I will clean it up and post it to the free pattern blog soon.
Here it is laid out on the floor.
Amira in her Not Square Play. I modified the pattern from the Summer 2004 Knitters' pattern, which used self patterning sport weight sock yarn, in an adult size. I thought it looked kind of dumb on a grown up, and a little busy with the self patterning yarn. However, on a child, with smaller squares, I thought it would be a nice use of hand painted yarn. I had thought of adding small sleeves to it, but I like it with the garter edging on the armholes.
This last one is of Amira posing. She is saying what a fun top it is.
And the top and throw are gorgeous, too!
