I knit this blanket with Passap E6000 knitting machine in 2 color double bed jacquard T186. The pattern T186 is tuck so I did loose some detail in the photo, but I wanted the larger size tuck stitch gives. The finished size of the blanket is 62″ wide x 78″ long. I did some editing in Photoshop before bringing the photo into Designaknit 9 Graphic Studio. Mostly editing to darken the photo and remove the background. Ditherlicious also helps for editing before import into Designaknit.
I have knit several Sunshine blankets for clients. It is a favorite for all ages even TEENS!! Since it is cold and wintery here, I think any sunshine would be nice!! I have listed the digital download pattern on my shop. The patterns includes a detailed pdf file of instructions, Wincrea .bmp, and Designaknit .stp files. The included pdf instructions are for Passap T186 (throw size) but it would also knit up very nice as a lap/twin size in T187, and also even a smaller size T183 baby size–(just use one strand 2/24 of each color to get the baby size). This blanket will also knit on any electronic knitting machine with 200 needles and Designaknit software. Link to my pattern shop here.
I designed the Candy Corn blanket a several months ago. I figured I would wait until fall to knit it out. Candy corn and the fall season seem to go hand in hand. I drew the design by hand and then used Designaknit to convert it into a knitting pattern. I am sharing my digital pattern files (Designaknit .stp and Wincrea .bmp) for free if you would like to knit one. If you do decide to sell finished blankets, please acknowledge “Herman Hills Farm” as the designer.
This blanket is knit in 2 color double bed jacquard. Needles 88-0-88 on the bed. It is 1000 lock passes/250 pattern rows. It can be knit on any electronic double bed machine with 200 needles. I knit mine on my Passap E6000 with tech 188. If you are using a Passap E6000 knitting machine, tech 187 or 188 work great for a lap and child size. Use tech 186 for a larger throw size. I used 2/24 yarn double strand for each color. Click HERE to access the Designaknit .stp and Wincrea .bmp files.
