This pattern was designed in memory of Dennis James who went to heaven in June of 1999. Size: This is in 4 premature baby sizes. Gauge: There is no special gauge here as different needles sizes will produce different Angelghan sizes. I tend to knit tightly, so I chose the size 10 needles to get the sizes I wanted. Experiment with needle sizes, there will be a baby out there for it to fit at one time or another. Materials: 4-ply yarn, size 10 needles, size H crochet hook. Cast On: 34, (56, 78, 100) sts. Pattern: Row 1- k 1, *o, k 3, k 2 tog., k 2 tog., k 3, o, k 1*. Rep bet *'s across row. Row 2- purl Row 3- knit Row 4- Rep row 1 Row 5- Rep row 2 Row 6- Rep row 3 Continue in pattern until length is approx. the same as the width of piece at the valley areas of the ripple 9 1\2, (15 1\2, 21 1\2, 27 1\2) times; ending with Row 3. Bind off. Weave in ends. Bottom Lacing: With crochet hook, make a crochet chain long enough to lace through the 2nd row of eyelets below bound off edge. Draw tightly making sure the piece is not tucked into the chain in places (this will give the ruffle at the bottom), weave in ends and tie chain in a bow. Front Lacing: With crochet hook, make a chain long enough to weave in criss crosses into eyelets going up side of piece, about 2/3's to 3/4 the length of Angelghan. Work chain in a criss cross fashion to lace up the front. Weave in ends and tie in a bow at top. Option: Instead of a crochet chain for the front lacing, buttons may be added so baby can be layed on the Angleghan and buttoned in. This may be a better option for the surviving premature infants, especially if they are on monitors. These were designed for Afghans For Angels by Sandy. Thank you Sandy!!! Sandy has made many of these and the hospitals really like them. They are easy to dress the baby in, and are easily adjusted to the baby's size.
