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!

Well, if it's October, it must be time for my annual birthday pattern! I know I haven't posted in quite awhile, so if anyone is still reading this blog, I apologize for the long absence. I've been super busy working on knitting hats for the babies at my local hospital.  I also "volunteered" to knit mittens for a Christmas fund raising event for our Historical Society. Actually, my husband asked me if I'd do "something" to help out, so I chose mittens. I'll post some pictures of them in another post, if you'd like to see some. I love knitting mittens.  Well, I did, but after 26 pair, I'm a little burned out.  In any event, back to my birthday post. I was struggling with what to make, when a Ravelry friend asked me if I had a unicorn. I don't do special requests, as it would be impossible to please everyone.  As I've said many times before, I just do these for fun and I'm happy to share. I never intended this to be a job and I'm not an artist by any stretch of the imagination! The idea of a unicorn appealed to me though and I gave it a whirl.

I think my granddaughter would like this one.  She's way too old for bibs, but she likes to take the washcloths and use them as blankets for her stuffed animals!
I'd post a picture of the bib, but for some reason, every time I try, it comes up sideways!

The links to the patterns are in the sidebar, or you can click here for the bib, or here for the cloth. Note that they are listed as "Baby Unicorn" in the "updated" files.

Many thanks to LouLou for test knitting the pattern.  Such a luxury for me!  I hope you all enjoy my birthday present to you.

Hi! Love the pattern but a tad confused by row 24. I count 35 stitches in that row...not 37. Where am I going wrong?
Thank you!
