This blanket was knitted using the holding position and has 11 pie-shaped wedges with a purl rose on each one.
|There are many motifs one could put on it, here are a few others. Click for larger chart.|
|Here is a small rose.|
|A tall flower.|
|This flower stands out nicely too.|
|Or maybe a star?|
|When there is a lot of contrast between colors, the second color seems to stand out more but you can still make out the design.|
These two are done a little differently because not only are stitches converted but the background is in two colors also.
|A few borders, maybe you can use one of them.|
|And just a few more.....!|
The nice thing about two color, two strand knitting is that the converted designs really stand out a lot, even just a narrow border. I hope you will try this technique!
