2-Strand Knitting Rocks!
I have no idea why I haven’t tried 2-strand knitting before. Maybe because I thought it would be too bulky? Or maybe because I thought working with two strands would be too unruly? Whatever the reason, I can now proclaim I AM A CONVERT. Especially for items like baby blankets, which seem to take FOREVER. I finished this cute cuddly–using one strand of 3ply variegated and one strand of 4ply white–in about two weeks. Keep in mind that I was only knitting a few hours in the evening and not every evening either! You can find the pattern, called Basketweave Baby Blanket, free at Lion Brand.
