RUG PATTERN
Due to numerous requests, here is the rug pattern that I mentioned in my last

rug for beside her bed. Feel free to pass this pattern on but please leave my
name attached.

Creyola (all the colours in the box); US 10.5 (6.5mm) needles.

of 2 and remember to increase the number of k1, p1 at each side of pattern also
by 1 st each side for every 2 sts inc in cast on).

Loosely cast off all sts -- knitting or purling as each st faces you.
This definitely looks like more work than it is. You won't need to follow the
pattern after about Row 19.
For throw rugs like this I find that just about any stitch pattern will work.
Especially knit / purl patterns like this one. They give reallly nice effect
with not to much effort.
If you decide to try a rug. Let me know. And feel free to pass on the pattern.
After typing it I realized that I have made too many changes for you to
successfully use the pattern in Mary Walker Phillip's book. My apologies.
----------
Well, that was a long one. My apologies to anyone trying to speed through the
mail. If anyone wants any help on the rug or chosing different stitch patterns
let me know.
Sincerely,
