0532 - Tuck Lap Robes & Baby Blankets

by Charlene Shafer

Tuck stitches and Mid-Gauge or Bulky machines are a great combination. Using the larger yarns make the stitches really PoP! The same designs are also wonderful knitted on the Standard machine. Using punchcard and manual selection machines is also an option. This collection of patterns is in two sizes - featuring lap robes and baby blankets as well for the two different gauge machines.

These blankets are fast and easy to knit. Cast-on ~ Knit ~ Bind Off ~ You're Finished! No extra finishing and these blankets are ready to use.

0197 - Knitting Every Other Needle

by Charlene Shafer

There are so many interesting yarns available on the market that it is sad to miss using them because you don't have a Mid-Gauge or Bulky Machine. Many of them can be knitted Every Other Needle on your Standard Machine.

Included are some simple ways to use your standard machine to knit bulky or novelty yarns. Some simple projects are included such as afghans, baby blankets and poncho.

This book includes Tri-Color Afghan, Tri-Color Baby Blanket, Braided Baby Afghan, Diamond Afghan, Chevron Tuck Afghan, Baby Chevron Blanket, Thread Lace Baby Blanket, and Poncho.


0173 - Braided Rugs & Such

by Charlene Shafer

We all have extra yarn in a bag , a box, a closet or some of us, even a room. How many times I have heard, "I need to use up some of this yarn I have before buying more". Here is a simple way to use up the leftovers, the extra cones or odd dye lots we have on the shelf. Knit rugs, Chair pads, Placemats, or coasters. They can be braided in several shapes. First try the basic circle, half circle or oval. Now try a square, heart shape or even an apple shape. The possibilities are endless.

In this book, we will give you some guidelines to go by. Since you can use any type of yarn and we all braid at a different tensions, it will be hard to give you an exact number of rows to knit. This is one of those projects you don't need a swatch. Don't you just love it? The items don't have to be exact sizes. Braid until you run out of yarn or you have the size needed. This is a great project if you have a motor drive.

As I travel around the country, I have seen many variations of how to knit and sew the braided rug. Here is what has worked for me. I'm sure there are other ways but this isn't rocket science and any way you choose, should work well for you.
