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.
