I would love to knit this as different coloured individual squares. ?Could you post a pattern on how to knit one square please? Many thanks.

3

Do you have to use circular knitting needles? Can it be done with straight knitting needles instead?

4

Straight needles can be used as well as circular needles ;-)

5

I am knitting this pattern right now and have just completed the first block of squares across. I don’t see anywhere in the pattern that indicates how to knit however many rows of garter stitch in order to seal in the square, so to speak, unless I’m missing something. Sure would love to hear back from you ASAP so I can get back to it tonight.

Many thanks, Nancy

Follow the pattern going line by line and the blanket will come out like the picture :-)

7

You need to repeat from the very beginning each time. I made the mistake of repeating rows 1-24 as the pattern suggests, and now I have no boarder between hearts :-/

8

Thank you so much for the input, Joanna! All of us working together, helping each other, is what makes charity work so fun. We appreciate your input to help others with this pattern.

Through trying different patterns and yarn we have fun, grow, and enjoy creating. So glad you tried the pattern. We’d love to see your finished project when you are done ;-) For more patterns and ideas, check out our facebook page at facebook.com/reliefShare

[...] Baby Blanket Heart Knitting Pattern [...]

11

I found that I had to do the complete pattern then repeat rows 1 to 6 and then k8 rows to make the boarder and the hearts appear in the middle of the square.. Is the pattern correct? as I tried what was suggested and it looked wrong.. This way works for me and makes it look symmetrical.. Just finished the first of my squares and it looks ok . such a lovely pattern even though I had to scratch my head for awhile… ;-) thank you…

I think some of the reason for confusion Nancy had is because your directions do not state that after row 24 you need to repeat rows 1-6.
Ravelry.com also has Ann Saglimbene’s pattern and those directions tell you to do that. You need those 6 rows to complete the block surrounding the heart.

16

Thanks so much, Barb – we sure appreciate your help and comments. It takes all of us working together to make miracles happen for the sick and needy we serve :-)

I agree with the pattern through row 24, but then, I think, there should be “rows 25-38″. Consider this “my two cents worth”. I have tried to explain what happens as you go through the pattern creating the surrounding area and the heart. I have tried to explain each group of rows and what they do in the pattern, and why I think rows 25-38 should be written into the pattern. Hope this helps. (With sincere apologies to Ann Saglimbene if she disagrees.

Instructions: CO 135 sts.
K 8 (This gives the border across the bottom.)

(Rows 1-6 (This will give the flat space below the hearts, and the side borders between the heart squares.)

Rows 1, 3 and 5 (RS): K
Rows 2, 4 and 6: K8, (p19, k6) 4 times, p19, k8

(Rows 7-23 will create the hearts and side borders, and row 24 will begin the space between hearts, and the top border of the heart squares.)

Row 7: K8, (k9, p1, k15) 4 times, k9, p1, k17
Row 8: K8, (p8, k3, p8, k6) 4 times, p8, k3, p8, k8
Row 9: K8, (k7, p5, k13) 4 times, k7, p5, k15
Row 10: K8, (p6, k7, p6, k6) 4 times, p6, k7, p6, k8
Row 11: K8, (k5, p9, k11) 4 times, k5, p9, k13
Row 12: K8, (p5, k9, p5, k6) 4 times, p5, k9, p5, k8
Row 13: K8, (k4, p11, k10) 4 times, k4, p11, k12
Row 14: K8, (p4, k11, p4, k6) 4 times, p4, k11, p4, k8
Row 15: K8, (k3, p13, k9) 4 times, k3, p13, k11
Row 16: K8, (p3, k13, p3, k6) 4 times, p3, k13, p3, k8
Rows 17 and 19: Rep Row 15
Row 18: Rep Row 16
Row 20: K8, (p3, k6, p1, k6, p3, k6) 4 times, p3, k6, p1, k6, p3, k8
Row 21: K8, (k3, p6, k1, p6, k9) 4 times, k3, p6, k1, p6, k11
Row 22: K8, (p4, k4, p3, k4, p4, k6) 4 times, p4, k4, p3, k4, p4, k8
Row 23: K8, (k5, p2, k5, p2, k11) 4 times, k5, p2, k5, p2, k13
Row 24: Rep Row 2

(At this point in the pattern, the pattern states the following instruction and I disagree with this. DO NOT DO THIS )
Repeat rows 1-24 until desired length.
K 8 rows.
BO

(After row 24, I think it should be…. )

(Rows 25-30 complete the flat space above the hearts (while maintaining the side borders )

Rows 25-30: Repeat rows 1-6

(Rows 31-38 create the solid garter stitch border above the row of blocks of hearts all the way across.)

Rows 31-38: Knit

Repeat Rows 1-38 for desired length. Bind off/Cast off.

I hope this helps….(Ann, I hope you agree with this adjustment/addition/clarification. Your pattern is beautiful.)

Thank you to Ann Saglimbene for sharing her free pattern for this blanket. Lots of babies in the hospital will now be cuddly warm. This is also a wonderful pattern for making chemo blankets for patients.

So I’ve spent the afternoon trying this pattern, and wish I had seen the last comment. Following the pattern add written did not give me the square lol. I’m going to take another stab at this tomorrow using the modifications in the comment of adding the extra routes. Thanks for the help!

19

Thanks so much! I have been searching and searching to find out how to do the squares! I haven’t had a chance to try it yet.

I completely agree with you Mary that’s how the 8rows of garter stitch will set the pattern . I started knitting this pattern in morning and hv just completed 1st blocks and when saw1-24repeat I knew there were 8 rows of garter st missing. I saw the version according to this pattern at ravelry but I am loving the one with 8 rots of garter. It kind of sets the pattern
