FO: Eternal Knot Baby Blanket

Here is the main reason for much silence on the blog lately. Knitting for a knitter is hard... and keeping it a secret can be a challenge.

What's even funnier is having your knitter friend cast-on for the same blanket. Oh did we have a good laugh over that one.

Pattern: Eternal Knot Baby Blanket by Daniel Yuhas

Yarn: 7 skeins of Encore Worsted

Needles: US 8 circular needle

Started: February 10, 2011

Finished: April 9, 2011

I cast-on for 20 loops and modified it by using a provisional cast-on to keep those stitches live for the set-up row. I then realized that I preferred a more traditional method of cables and changed the garter stitch to stockinette.

Liking the more tight cables I then decided to add another cable twist, but didn't want to change the overall structure too much. This lead to me adding a cable twist on the wrong side and still stay in pattern.

Overall it's a great pattern. I did have to buy a few more skeins just because the tighter cables were eating up the yardage.
