interesting pattern that makes a square


I had a pattern to make a baby bib, which I did; it’s basically half of what you see here, except it has ties. For this I CO 49 sts, knitted 1 row and then knitted 19 sts, carried 1 stitch from left needle to right needle, put right needle through 2 sts as if to knit, then passed carried over stitch over those 2 sts. This makes a double decrease (DD). Then knit the remaining 19 sts. Knit next row back. Proceed in this way; next, knit 18 sts, do the DD and knit remaining 18 sts and knit the row back.

It ends up making a square. You can use whatever size knitting needle you wish.



diaper cake

I’ve always admired diaper cakes – I had a chance to give one away when some people wanted to use our church for a baby shower, however they decided to use a different facility – but all is not lost – there is an auction I can donate it to for people taking foster kids to a camp this summer. Here is the diaper cake and little diaper dolls using socks & washcloths. Fun!
