I knit a cute baby blanket out of two huge balls of Bernat Chunky softee baby blanket yarn. I have a half ball extra. Is it possible to make a baby hat with extra Bernat chunky softee baby blanket yarn?. If so does anyone have a pattern for a 3 month old using the Bernat chunky softee baby blanket yarn? I do not know how to take a normal baby pattern and adjust needle size to chunky yarn, stitches etc. Thank you.

Yes, The confusion is cleared up....24 decreases, the number of needles, markers and rows. Thank you so much!

Thank you! That is exactly what happened. I did end up with a short blunt toe and am now back on the drawing board. :-}

Hi Knit Gogi,
After reading can I ask you to clarify that I am getting the instructions correctly? Two markers and three needles. One needle at the beginning of the row which also starts the heel and heel is 30 stitches, second needle 15 stitches and third needle 15 stitches total of 60 stitches. You write;
Rnd 1 K1, sl, K1, Psso, knit to 3 stitches before the next marker
K2tog, k 1, sl, k1, psso slip marker (am wondering if I should start this 5stitches before marker? Then knit to last 3 stitches on 3rd needle K2 tog K2. Is this what you are suggesting?
Is the idea to decrease 6 stitches per row? This is all new to me and any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! Aleta

Thank you....no it is not a friend who did it for me. It is a friend who had an acquaintance whose mother passed the pattern.

I wish I could call her. Am going to try Knitgoggi's suggestion though. That makes sense. And yes, I see where you are talking about two markers. That too makes sense. Thank you so very much.

Thank You! Below is the pattern. Am not sure there is a link. A friend passed this on to me. Thank you so very, very much.

Basic knitted Stocking I made for a sample.

This is a basic pattern that I created. From this pattern you can put in any design as long as it fits. It can be striped or solid. I use graph paper and chart out what designs I want to use.
Basic Knitted Christmas Stocking Pattern.

Size 8 Circular Knitting Needle
I like the 12 inch circular but a 16 inch may work. As long as the stitches fit without pulling. It was made with a worsted weight yarn. You can also use 4 double pointed needles. This pattern doesn't have a seam.

Cast On 60 Stitches

Knit 1, Purl 1 in ribbing for 5 rows.

Then knit around for 9 rows ( placing a marker to mark the beginning of the round). This is the area where you will place the name later. It is the white area in the stocking above.

Next knit round and round for 70 rows (this stocking has 69 rows because that is how the pattern worked out) or desired length to the heel. I like to mark off each row to keep track of the rows. It is easy with stripes because you just count the stripes.


Here you can see the ribbing, the area for a name, the marker and the snowflake pattern.

Now it's time for the heel. Using a double pointed needle, Knit 30 for the heel. Leave the rest of the stitches on the circular to work later for the foot. Work back and forth on two needles.


This is the short row method, but there are other methods for turning heels. Use the method you prefer. This is a Christmas Stocking so the heel is for shaping instead of actually fitting a foot.

Slip the first stitch and knit to 1 before the end.
Turn, slip the first stitch, purl to 1 before the end.

Turn, slip the first stitch, knit to 2 before the end.
Turn, slip the first stitch, purl to 2 before the end.

Continue in this manner until you have 9 stitches on each side, ending with the purl row.

Now you have to put the stitches back. Beginning with the knit row, slip the first stitch, knit to one stitch before the gap (you will be able to see the space), slip the stitch before the gap, pick up the bar between the gap and put it on the right needle. Knit the slipped stitch and the picked bar together. You have closed the gap on the right side.

Turn and slip the first stitch, purl to one stitch before the gap, slip the stitch before the gap, pick up the bar between the gap and put on needle. Purl the slipped stitch and the picked up bar together. This closes the gap on the left side.

Continue until all 30 stitches are on the needle with no gaps.


This is how the short row heel will look.

Begin knitting around on the circular needle again keeping in the pattern. Knit about 4 inches for the foot (24 rows) and begin the toe.

I changed to the white at this point so you could easily see. Switch to double pointed needles and knit 15 stitches on the first needle, then knit 15, place marker, knit 15 on the next needle and knit 15 on the last needle.

Row 1:
Now on first needle knit 1 and decrease on next two stitches by slipping next stitch, knitting a stitch and passing the slip stitch over knit stitch (psso), knit to 3 stitches before the next marker. Knit 2 together, knit 1, slip marker, knit 1 and psso by slipping stitch, knitting stitch and passing the slip stitch over knit stitch. Then knit to last 3 stitches on third needle and knit 2 together and knit 1.

Row 2: Knit all around without any decreases.

Repeat these two rows until 36 stitches remain. Then decrease every row until 20 total stitches remain. Next knit stitches on 1 needle and to marker on 2 needle. With another needle knit what is left on 2 needle and all on 3rd needle. There will be 10 stitches on each needle.



Toe completed and ready to close with the kitchener stitch.

The kitchener stitch is just 4 steps. Cut a length of yarn from the piece you have been knitting with.

1. Hold the two layers together with the purl sides facing each other (like the photo above). Thread the yarn through a yarn needle and insert the needle through the first stitch in front needle as if to knit. Pulling the yarn through the stitch, slip the stitch off the needle.

2. Insert the yarn needle through the second stitch of the front needle as if to purl; draw yarn through but leave stitch on needle.

3. Insert the yarn needle through the first stitch of back needle as if to purl; pull through the stitch and slip stitch off.

4. Insert the yarn needle through second stitch of back needle as if to knit; draw yarn through but leave stitch on needle.


Short row heel and finished closed toe.

The last thing to do is weave in all the loose ends of yarn and duplicate stitch the name in the white area.

I am not a professional pattern writer, so if anyone sees an error or has a question, please let me know.

She refers to markers and there is only one marker. I have no idea what she means. So when do I start knitting two together and where? Sorry just confused.

I am knitting my first Xmas stocking on circular needles and am at the toes. I have no idea what to do I have 60 stitches on have no idea how to finish as below directions are not clear. Can someone help by translating this into simple language? Below are the instructions and below that my confusion. Thank you a million times for any insight on how to finish this.


Begin knitting around on the circular needle again keeping in the pattern. Knit about 4 inches for the foot (24 rows) and begin the toe.

I changed to the white at this point so you could easily see. Switch to double pointed needles and knit 15 stitches on the first needle, then knit 15, place marker, knit 15 on the next needle and knit 15 on the last needle.

Row 1:
Now on first needle knit 1 and decrease on next two stitches by slipping next stitch, knitting a stitch and passing the slip stitch over knit stitch (psso), knit to 3 stitches before the next marker. Knit 2 together, knit 1, slip marker, knit 1 and psso by slipping stitch, knitting stitch and passing the slip stitch over knit stitch. Then knit to last 3 stitches on third needle and knit 2 together and knit 1.

Row 2: Knit all around without any decreases.


Repeat these two rows until 36 stitches remain. Then decrease every row until 20 total stitches remain. Next knit stitches on 1 needle and to marker on 2 needle. With another needle knit what is left on 2 needle and all on 3rd needle. There will be 10 stitches on each needle.


I am confused on this:
When starting the toe, do you knit onto 4 or 3 dpn? Also I notices there are 2 markers in the first set of directions for row 1, but I only see in the directions about switching to dpn's where one marker is placed.

AND This is confusing.

"Row 1:
Now on first needle knit 1 and decrease on next two stitches by slipping next stitch, knitting a stitch and passing the knit stitch over slipped stitch (psso), knit to 3 stitches before the next marker. Knit 2 together, knit 1, slip marker, knit 1 and psso. Then knit to last 3 stitches on third needle and knit 2 together and knit 1."

For the Knit 2 together, knit 1, slip marker, knit 1 and psso.... I am confused on the PSSO. We didn't slip a stitch here, so what stitch are you passing over? This may be a silly question but wanted to make sure I get it right.

I'm not sure you would want the heel opposite the name. You want the name on the side of the sock if that makes sense


Thank you, that is what I am trying to figure out. Do I begin the heel after the name? This is the first stocking I've done. Thank you!

I am knitting a Xmas stocking for 1st time. I am at the heel section. I have tried doing the below instruction about 10 times and it is not working out. I am able to get the 9 stitches on each side ending with a purl row. It is the rest that keeps throwing me off. Does anyone have an easier method for the 30 stitches?

Slip the first stitch and knit to 1 before the end.
Turn, slip the first stitch, purl to 1 before the end.

Turn, slip the first stitch, knit to 2 before the end.
Turn, slip the first stitch, purl to 2 before the end.

Continue in this manner until you have 9 stitches on each side, ending with the purl row.

Now you have to put the stitches back. Beginning with the knit row, slip the first stitch, knit to one stitch before the gap (you will be able to see the space), slip the stitch before the gap, pick up the bar between the gap and put it on the right needle. Knit the slipped stitch and the picked bar together. You have closed the gap on the right side.

Turn and slip the first stitch, purl to one stitch before the gap, slip the stitch before the gap, pick up the bar between the gap and put on needle. Purl the slipped stitch and the picked up bar together. This closes the gap on the left side.

Continue until all 30 stitches are on the needle with no gaps.

Is there any guarantee where the heel is going to end up on the stocking as I knitted her name in rather than doing duplicate stitch. I already knitted in her name. I'd hate for the heel to end up front and center of the stocking. Many thanks. Full pattern is here. http://www.thecabincountess.com/2013/10/my-basic-pattern-for-knitting-christmas.html

Hi All, My friend is in chemo. Below is a picture of her favorite hat. It is a bit worn. She would like me to make her one and she would like to try to make one for herself too. I cannot find the pattern. She purchased it years ago at a bazar. Is anyone familiar with this pattern? I have looked on Ravelry. I don't know if it is called a double hat, reversible hat or what? Experienced crocheters pleas help. Hat 1 is the outside and Hat 2 is the inside.
Many thanks for your help.

I do not have a link. Here are two pictures of the hat. On the outside is double crochet and then triple crochet every other stitch with pompom on top. The inside looks to be all triple crochet. I do not know where to decrease or how to attach.hat.JPG

Hello,

A cancer recover friend wants a crochet hat pattern that also has crochet lining. She showed the hat to me but I do not know if this is worked in one piece or two separate pieces sewn together. Does anyone have this pattern to share?

I am looking for a pattern to use scrap yarn to make a child's afghan. Does anyone have a pattern for the Unholy Granny Square that is one big square not tons of little squares. One just keeps adding to the original square? I googled and only received 12" square patterns.

Thank you so much
