Baby Tree of Life Blanket
Created By: Elizabeth Minium
Pattern Source: other:

I would recommend this pattern, and I am planning to make the larger sized Tree of Life afghan based on my experience with this small version. It's fun to knit, and very pretty. I appreciated having both the written instructions and the charts to work from, and used both at different points in the work.

For the border, I made a row of single crochet around the finished main body of the blanket at a rate of about one crochet stitch every two knit rows down the sides, and about three crochet stitches per four or five knit stitches across the top and bottom. I attached the border by picking up one side of a crochet stitch at the end of every other knit row of the border, and then knitting it together with the first stitch of the next row (so two knit rows to each crochet stitch). I find this sort of attachment works very well particularly when joining knit pieces at right angles to each other. I adjusted for corners by knitting twice into one crochet stitch three times (which puts 6 extra rows of border into the corner).
