For a while now I've been thinking about how to go about improving my circle cloth pattern so the resulting cloth has a neater edge. Over and over despite it's popularity I've heard the comment made that they love the cloth, BUT it would be nicer if it had an edge that wasn't so wonky looking.
Needing to make a baby blanket prompted me to pull out some kitchen cotton and knit up some circle cloths and try an idea I had to make a smoother looking edge. First trying it on a smaller scale with a dishcloth and then perhaps trying a blanket.
I was very pleased with my cloths and I think they look pretty good.
Then I moved on to a baby blanket. I'm still only on the beginning stages of completion, but so far so good and I am really loving the thick and cushiony blanket.
I'm using easy care Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn and it's so soft and silky. I even love the wrong side which looks similar to garter stitch stripes.
The secret to the neat edge is knitting the beginning and end of each row in a double knit.
I am very pleased with the results. What do you think?
Do you think possibly spring is really here? Sure felt like spring today with temps in the 60's. We only have a few very small snow piles left. You can finially see green sprouts trying to spring forth...oh, I can't wait...hope everyone is enjoying their own spring weather...perhaps with some outside knitting? Happy Knitting everyone :)
