Baby prayer blanket
Close up of blanket
Occasionally the memory works and out of the cobwebs of the brain, after deeply searching and writing down what I THOUGHT was correct, I came up with the pattern I knitted during my teenage years. I tried to remember it and tried to remember on paper, but it wouldn't do, the fingers had to do the remembering - so this 29 stitch repeating pattern is a project I am working on now - I cast on 145 stitches and am using size 10 1/2 circulars - Plymouth Encore Yarn.
Would you like the pattern? I have no idea if it is officially copyrighted because the last time I saw the pattern was in the 70s - but if you want the pattern, I will be glad to email it to you. The first person to ask for it may need to wait until I get it down on a document, but it is not too difficult and has a nice look to it. You can email me and I will send you the pattern. I won't have a gauge, just the pattern, so the rest you are on your own.
I forgot to add the prayer aspect - through the repetition of 29 stitches (the rows that I don't have to count and k2tog, I am trying to pray the Lord's prayer and have it flow with the 29 stitches. So far I have been only minimally successful in that respect, however, if I have stitches left over, I pray for each family member that will be receiving the prayer blanket for their new addition.
