I think you can figure out how large the blouse will be for her hips. I am also pear shaped and doing top down it is very easy to increase. Yes, hide the increases in the garter section, but this is A line so is naturally bigger on the bottom than the top. The gauge is 6st/inch so follow the pattern, begin the increases as the pattern says but do the increases a bit more frequently. But, remember, only 6 stitches increases an inch. Good luck. I love this pattern and am thinking i may try it too!!!

37 years ago right now i had a 2 month old baby girl, in the heat of summer. My neighbor had crocheted her a "mesh" pink blanket. It was PERFECT! If it was cool a thin receiving blanket went inside the "mesh" blanket and if not it worked beautifully to swaddle her without adding extra heat. Yes, you needed to be careful with the holes, but it was my favorite blanket when she was tiny and small.

Try Ann Budds basic sweater book. It's set in sleeve pattern fits quite well and is very basic. The only thing i have found is the sleeves tend to be too long for a woman, so do measure out how long you want
them to be!

I do a long tail cast on using my thumb. I find this much, much easier than the way most people do it. I don't know if there is a video like that, but you basically wrap the yarn around you thumb crossing the two pieces of yarn in front of you and then you knit into that top part of the loop and slide the yarn off. It makes a nice neat cast on. I have no idea how to post a picture to this specific forum, but if you Private message me i will try talk you thru it!!!

I, also totally agree. I have my own opinions and if someone posts a political rant it does NOT change my mind, and i doubt it changes anyone else's mind either. I check this site daily and definitely NOT for political opinions!!! "May God bless America!".

I had a situation similar several years back. A lady bought yarn and a pattern for a beautiful shawl, thinking she could do it. I am an experienced knitter and looked at the pattern thinking----I could do this, but it would take a long time, and would challenge me. I tried explain it was not a beginners project but she had watched you tube and assured me she had K and P down pat. So, I decided the best was to try do a few pattern repeats. Well, after 4 successive weeks of "trying", she finally caught on that "this is too hard for a beginner". I met this lovely woman at a snowbird craft meeting and have not seen her return in succeeding years. ----I wonder what happened to the yarn???

I make many baby blankets, but i don't make them 36X36, I generally make them closer to 32X32. 800 yds should be enough for that, but it will be close. If you want to make it 36X36 my suggestion would be to find a matching color and make a chevron blanket with several narrow stripes on each end, to give you the extra yardage you need. Or make separate squares and sew them together, you could use up some "left overs" and randomly put in a few colors here and there.

Its all your fault!! :) I drove 100 miles and spent over $90!!!! (not too awful, $1/mile) I bought mostly baby blanket yarn, plus enough for a sweater for a Christmas present. Good price on good yarn. Can't wait to get started on that, but i have a "request" afghan to finish first. I would say it was a very good day! And, Herschnerrs is in Steven's point.

Our family has also gone thru an entirely different type of tragedy. It is humbling to be on the receiving end of gifts, prayers and goodness. God is still good, the sun still rises and life goes on. Blessings as you settle in to a new normal and praying that as you look back you see you have grown stronger. May God bless you and your hubby as you settle in to your new normal. Nice craft room!!!!

I've made some log cabin baby blankets, but never anything quite like this. I love the white border and will need to remember that.

I have wondered the same thing, aside from those worn as accessories to an outfit, i seldom see knit shawls out there being worn, but i find them beautiful. I made myself one a few years back and it sits proudly on the shelf in the closet waiting for me to wear it!
