It’s my turn! If you’ve been keeping up with the Wonder Blanket, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind unique blanket to keep for yourself, or gift! I’ve seen so many beautiful stitches and stitch combinations and that doesn’t count the lovely colors, and color combinations. Wow!
With so many wonderful and varied stitches to the Wonder blanket, I decided for an easy combo with repeats of rows 1 and 2 for the 6 rows I’m adding.
Sometimes it’s nice to sit and watch TV while stitching away without the need to study instruction. It’s a repeat that’s easy on the eye, easy on the wrist and doesn’t take much thought. 😉
I was planning on adding post sts; something appealing and fun, but as our blankets grow, it becomes more difficult to maneuver them while stitching, not to mention it’s hot! So in the end, this is what I designed; I hope you enjoy it for the non-complexity and ease it brings.
Option 1: End off and start work on the WS, or work a row of sc, hdc, or dc to begin row 1 on the WS.
Option 2: If working an additional row to begin on the WS, work a repeat of rows 1 & 2 just once and end with a row to match your first row be it sc, hdc, or dc stitches. This option will give you 6 rows total.
Option 3: If working an additional row to begin on the WS, work a repeat of rows 1 & 2 twice, then end with a row to match your first row be it sc, hdc, or dc stitches. This option will give you 8 rows total.
Part 15 ended with work on the WS meaning to start the next row puts you on the RS. You can either end off and join the yarn from the WS of the blanket or you can work a row of sc, hdc, or even dc across to begin work on the WS for row 1.
