Leo’s Mane Sew Along

On my Needles

I’m continuing to work on the Baby Love Double Knit Blanket. I added on the fourth colour on Wednesday, and am 10 rows away from adding in the next one.
 Each colour runs for 25 rows. There are 11 total colour blocks or stripes, and I’m only four in, so there’s quite a way to go yet. But each time I do the pattern repeat, it gets faster. I’ve gotten to the point where I can recognize where I am on the chart, which helps a lot. At first the double knitting was very confusing to look at and to figure out. I’m so glad I stuck with it, though. This technique would make such a wonderfully warm pair of mittens, or a two coloured sweater.  However, all other knitting projects, or even plans, are on hold until this is done.
I’m linking up to Judy’s On the Needles, and then it’s back to knitting.


  1. Beautiful, love the doubble knitting, have never done that before. It is so pretty.

  2. You are a FAR braver soul than I! Your blanket looks complicated, but oh so beautiful!

  3. What a fun pattern! I love it, and anything with hearts, especially.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
