Namaskaram - salutations

Namaskaram - salutations I dedicate my blog to the enormous art lovers across the globe I love knitting so much that I have started a blog for knitting.Knitting is a job that I will like to go on.Through knitting I breathe life into many people's life. It is knitting time. When I want to relax I do it with knitting. I am a knitting buff.I love to do knitting on various topics. There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

Thank You

Baby shawl

Hi Friends,
This is my first big project with two colors. A baby shawl that has been gifted to Ooviya[Mangai's] daughter Baby Sai Dhanya.

The pattern I picked it up from my library book Harmony guide to knitting

Yarns 2 colors as per your choice
A pair of knitting needles size 8

The pattern:
Cast on 161 stitches
K1, p1,k 1, p1 for 6 rows [ this will become the edge rows so that it will not curl inside
Using A color
1 st row: k1,p1,k1,p1 knit entire row till last 4 sts , p1, k1 p1,k1
2 nd row: k1,p1,k1,p1 purl entire row till last 4 sts , p1, k1, p1 k1
Using B color
3 rd row: K1,p1,k1,p1 *k1 sl 1,  k2,sl 1*: rep till last 4 sts p1,k1,p1,k1
4 th row: K1, p1,k1,p1 * p1,sl 1,p1,sl1 * rep till last 4 sts , p1,k1,p1,k1

Repeat these 4 rows till you complete 60 cm or desired length

Then K1,p1,k1p1 [ thiw will become the other edge]

bind off

Abb. used
k = knit
p = purl
sl = slip
rep = repeat
* = repeat of pattern

1. Both ends of the shawl

2.Closer view of the design  

3. Reverse side of the shawl [ you can see how both color yarns are twined together]

4. Appearance of shawl when folded

5.The size of the shawl

6. The shawl [edges of both side. I used both the colors of the yarns]

Hope you will like this pattern
