This one was designed by Carla Willingham:
For a little background info on the pattern chart, and/or you wish to purchase more than one pattern, visit my blog page for this pattern by clicking HERE.
For even more immediate gratification:
Rechart is done, but have to double check reformatted written instructions — which include stitch counts; didn’t want to shrink chart to accommodate the stitch counts. So, chart readers, when you’re tired, you can use the written instructions.
Forgot to mention that have been working on a linen version of the blanket using Size 3 needles… not sure why I did it because I wanted to avoid using needles that small, but it looks like they work best for fingering/sport weight yarn — better than size 4 that is. Also, I made another interesting “mistake” with the border… shouldn’t write without showing pics, but will try to get them asap.
Someone again asked me for the written instructions for Lyra, so I put them up at e-junkie. Look on the left side menu under Beyer/Verlag fuer die Frau…
Won’t post a photo yet because the “incompleteness” of the border is quite maddening. Turns out the border I planned would require THREE additional skeins of yarn, even though the main pattern only requires ONE! Also, I forgot that I did not finish editing the pattern and accidentally knitted a border that requires only TWO additional skeins — I only had 2 skeins (267 yards each) to begin with, so another week of waiting.
Meanwhile, it turns out that one reason I like the Glockenblume pattern so much is that it reminds me of two other small Niebling patterns, “Kleeblatt” and a no name one that I found in two different magazines. Am including the pictures here, but to purchase them, look for their names at left under Mallins and Vobach.
Also, some years ago I had someone test knit one of them in wool yarn… putting several of them together would have made a lovely scarf… will be posting pics of the scarves I make using yarn I already have.
Kleeblatt – Larger Doily Test Knitted in Wool — Several joined together would make a nice scarf; two joined together would make a nice purse.
