Thank you very much for popping in to the 'SIBOL' Blog.
As you know I have suggested making Shawls for the Elderly. I thought this might be a good idea as it will be something different for our Group to try and also of course give warmth to an Elderly person. The Ladies over on RAVELRY think that it's a good idea so I'm really pleased. Please don't go to the trouble of buying new yarn just make it in whatever you have in your stash. I just thought it might be nice to enclose a few in with our Blankets when I go out on my Deliveries.
Some ideas are as follows:
Ann C has contributed this pattern for a Granny Shawl
Row 2 : TR2 in the same stitch as turning chain. Ch1 (TR3 Ch1 TR3) in to centre chain space. Ch1 TR3 in to third ch of the turning chain from previous row. Ch3, turn.
Row 3 : TR2 in the same stitch as turning chain. Ch1 TR3 i. each chain space to centre. Ch1 (TR3 Ch1 TR3) in centre chain space. Ch1 TR3 in each chain space to end. Ch1 TR3 in to third ch of the turning chain from previous row.
Repeat Row 3 until shawl is desired size.
This one has been sent in by MarilynJG. Love the blues in this one and such a pretty border. We are in need of Blankets for Men so please feel free to make them in Men's colours.
Liztelf made and donated 'Woodland Wandering' an ideal Blanket for a Man don't you think?
Superb flat braiding once again Liz. Colours perfect too.
Well I think that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by.
