Hooray! One blanket is off the needles!

Its based on the free pattern: Western Hills – The Blanket by Julia Stanfield. Its knitted in a pale blue and mint green, and as I was knitting it, I felt it needed a little pop of colour. Hence the crochet border and fish in orange.

It also made me remember one of my past knits:

The fish motif is from ‘Kitty Placemat’ in ‘Kitty Knits: Projects for Cats and their People’ by Donna Druchunas.

I do like goldfish, they make me smile…

Anyhow, short post today as its been a bit hectic with work and family life at the moment.

  1. Hi there Fishy,
    I’m attempting this Western Hills pattern
    But ….after doing a kfb (increase 1)
    Then a CDD (deceases 2)
    It decreases the stitch number
    What am I doing wrong?

    • Roxy says:

      For the blanket it’s kfb-cdd-kfb per repeat of the chevron pattern. So that’s two increases and two decreases so the stitch number remains constant.

      Say you have 3 repeats. That would be kfb-ddc-kfb, kfb-ddc-kfb, kfb-ddc-kfb.

      Hope that makes sense!
