Crafting in July

Resumed a knitting project that was set aside due to the move. This one is a baby blanket in an off white yarn. I wanted to do something whimsical. I love giving a new born the little book called the Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar. So when I stumbled across the stitch called the caterpillar stitch, I had no choice but to give it a try.

I don’t have a picture of my project yet as it is in progress, but, I found this picture on line showing the picture. This stitch is a textured stitch and is just made using the knit and purl stitch.

Finally finished this blanket last night. I used two One Pound skeins of Natura Yarn. Color is Pure Fisherman. The finished size is 44 x 52 inches.

Close up of the caterpillar stitch. Kept the weave closed when blocked to create a different effect.
