Sweet Three Color Blanket

I am sharing a simple 3 color blanket design. The Designaknit and Wincrea files are for your personal use. This blanket can be knit on any double bed electronic knitting machine with 200 needles. This is a small blanket good for a baby blanket size. A fine yarn like one strand of 2/24 of each color works well for 3 color jacquard. Knit a few swatches with your yarns to see what you like. The blanket is 176 stitches and 144 pattern rows (which is 864 lock passes). I knit my blanket on a Passap E6000 with Designaknit and used T199. The blanket turned out very nice. The red strawberries did not photograph well. It is always hard to photograph red colors! Next time I knit this, I will make blue strawberries. 🙂

How to Save as .bmp in Gimp

Wincrea is free software (for PC) which is used to design stitch patterns for Passap E6000 knitting machines. You can download Wincrea and the user manual here. Wincrea uses .bmp files. If you are designing with Designaknit(DAK), and want to share your stitch pattern with someone who uses Wincrea, you need to save the file as a .bmp. Here are the steps to follow to save a .stp file as a .bmp

Open your file in Stitch Designer in DAK. Turn off the grid view and knitting pattern view if on. Go to edit/copy.

Open Gimp. Go to edit/paste.

Go to file/export as

Rename the file and be sure to add the .bmp file extension to the end of your file name. Click “export.” A pop up box comes up for export. Don’t change anything just click export again.

That is is. Find your file and open it in Wincrea.

Happy Camper Blanket

passap camper blanket

We often camp with our horses. I designed a “camping theme” blanket for our horse trailer camper. This Passap machine knitted blanket has been very popular with my “camping” clients. I have listed this pattern in my Etsy shop for anyone who wants to knit some blankets for “happy campers!” This is a 2 color design. The blanket has room on the bottom border to add names or initials. There is room for 2 lines of text if needed. My finished blanket was 64″ wide and 84″ long and knit in one piece on a Passap. (This blanket can be knit on any electronic knitting machine with 200 needles).

What’s Included

Your download will include: stp file (Designaknit), .bmp file (Wincrea), pdf file with instructions.

You must have Designaknit or Wincrea to use the files.

The pattern includes detailed directions for Passap E6000 (technique, cast on, cast off). This pattern can be knit on any double bed electronic knitting machine that has 200 needles. Other brand machines will use the .stp file and must have Designaknit software.

This pattern assumes you know how to download files to your knitting machine and you know how to use your machine. Here is a direct link to the Happy Camper Blanket.
