Updated patterns!

I'm in the process of updating my old patterns, particularly the bibs, to include charts. I'm rewriting some of the directions to make the patterns even easier and including alternative methods for beginning the bibs and for making the ties. Look for these patterns in the sidebar to see which ones have been added. It's a slow process, but eventually, they'll all be there!

Heart Flag Cloth

Permission is granted to make and sell items from this pattern provided that credit is given to me as the designer.  Permission is not granted to reproduce the actual pattern, or post it, or distribute it, without my express permission.  Please respect my copyright and play nice!

PDF file is available here.

Size:  approximately 7" X 8".

Materials:  One skein of worsted weight cotton in a solid color.  The cloth pictured was done in Peaches & Crème in Delft Blue.

Needles:  U.S. Size 6/4.0mm or 5/3.75mm  Because this is a “picture” cloth, you want your fabric to be fairly dense so the design will pop out.  If you are a loose knitter, then you might want to drop down a needle size.

k = knit
p = purl
sts. = stitches

I love this design! I am part of a yahoo group, the Handmade Afghans Project and am wondering if you could convert this to where it would come out as a 6 x 9 inch rectangle with the pattern centered. We make afghans for wounded soldiers and this would make a nice addition to the mostly plain squares that are used.
