Change of Plans

Remember the lap robes I was making for a local rehab hospital?

They were prizes for the annual Casino Night that my Rotray Club provides for the resident patients.

Requested prize list came out sans lap robes.

So I'm thinking that these really could be baby blankets, and so, they are!

Off to the reservation.

The particulars: Red Heart Strata, about 2 5ounce balls.Appropriate needles. Make a big mitered square. I started with 80 stitches, marker, 80 stitches. When that is finished, pick up stitches on one side, knit, thowing in a k2 yo row every so often; I did this for 25 rows. Bind off. Repeat for remaining 3 sides. Then pick up stitches along one of the corner edges (12 stitches, place marker, 12 stitches). Complete a mitered square on those stitches. Repeat for remaining 3 corners.

Add an edging if you want (I didn't). Weave in all ends.

While I think it would have worked just fine as a lap robe, I love it as a baby blanket. Was waiting to see the corners, and I like how they turned out. With the right yarn, that could be an interesting project.
