Queen of Hearts lace-edged Newborn Blanket

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

17 stitches + 25 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with US #8 (5mm) needles

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

BLANKET
With A, cast on 63 stitches
Rows 1-7 St st beg with a k row

Heart Stripe
Row 8 Change to B, purl
Row 9 *K1 B, k1 A. Repeat from * to end of row.
Row 10 Change to B, purl

Row 11 Change to A, work in St st until piece measures 13” [33cm] from beg, end after a RS row.

Repeat rows 8-10 for Heart stripe

Work 7 rows St st with A.
Bind off. Weave in ends.

Note: The edges of the afghan will be curling under at this stage. Don't worry -- this is normal behavior for stockinette stitch; it will stop when the lace edging is attached.

LACE EDGING
Cast on 5 sts.
Row 1 K 1, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 6 sts
Rows 2, 4 and 6 Knit
Row 3 K 2, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 7 sts
Row 5 K 3, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 8 sts
Row 7 K 4, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 9 sts
Row 8 Bind off 4 sts, k to end – 5 sts.
Repeat rows 1-8 until lace edging is 70 in [178 cm] long. Bind off all sts on last row.

With large-eyed blunt needle, sew lace to blanket, gathering 3” [7.6 cm] of lace at the corners. Join ends of edging. Weave in ends.

Gently press the finished afghan (with steam) so that the lace lies flat.

Queen of Hearts lace-edged Newborn Blanket Reviewed by on 2010-10-26 *****
This turned out beautifully. What a nice pattern. It was easier to do than I expected, but quite time consuming to put the lace on how I wanted it. That said, I made it quite a bit bigger than recommended. All that work, and they can only use it for a month? I wanted them to be able to use it for the first six!
I will be making this again for another expectant mother quite soon.
