This is the only other pattern from the (defunct) Tricot Passion website that I have not seen anywhere else. Judging from the key to symbols, it may have been published in Femmes d’Aujourd’hui but have no idea what the issue number might be. The pattern might make a nice pullover blouse, but so many patterns so little time! ;-) Meanwhile, below is a Photoshop edit of the original photo for further inspiration, for perhaps a curtain.

Modification For Baby Blanket With I-Cord Bind Off

Original Design

This is another pattern that I haven’t seen anywhere else. It was written out in Dutch. Didn’t take long to knit the baby blanket, maybe 12-14 hours, because of trying out different needle sizes for the i-cord. Ended up using a US Size 00 (1.5 mm) sock needle for the i-cord even though the blanket itself (cotton bamboo blend) was knitted on US Size 3 (3.0 mm) which is slipped to a Size US Size 2 (2.75 mm) needle because the tip was smaller. The beginning and end of the i-cord were grafted together. As an alternative, the border can be bound off with a picot edge, or worked in stockinette with a hem created by repeating “yo, k2” to form the fold line and a slight picot edge. Also, forgot to include in the instructions that the adjacent leaves pucker up while knitting but flatten out after washing and blocking.

Originally named simply “Napperon Carre” or “Square Doily”

This is one of several patterns discovered in 2006 on a website called “”. The site no longer exists although it might be visible via Also, the patterns might have been originally published by some predecessor of, Hachette Canada, that currently publishes a knitting magazine titled “Tricot Passion”. The patterns are all in French, with some being charted.

None of the patterns show a source nor designer, the latter probably being early Niebling; and have not been able to find photos on the web for most of them, except for one or two. In the next few days will publish my rechart of one more that I especially like and haven’t seen anywhere else. These two recharts are basically to prevent them from getting lost in the dust bin of history.
