As my longtime readers know, I am a collector of stitch pattern books. If you’re participating in the Harmony Blanket Knit Along, I’m guessing you love learning new stitch patterns, too. For each of the 10 patterns I’m designing in the Harmony Blanket KAL, I’ll be highlighting the book where I came across the stitch pattern. This pattern is based on “Lacy Stripes” from 200 Stitch Patterns for Baby Blankets: Knitted and Crocheted Designs, Blocks and Trims for Crib Covers, Shawls and Afghans by Jan Eaton. You can find my complete book review here and, if you’re reading this on or before July 2, 2018, you can also enter for your chance to win a copy!
