Olympic Pattern

I spent the morning cruising Olympic Knitting blogs. I noticed that several of the blogs do not have a picture of their intended finished product nor their pattern. Then I realized that if this was important to me that I should publish my own.

This pattern is from the book "Quick Knitted Afghans" edited by Jeanne Stauffer. The pattern I'm using starts on page 100. This picture is from the book as well. (I think that this is a rather ugly blue yarn... and an even uglier sofa... but it shows the pattern pretty well).

If you remember, I'm knitting a baby blanket in a lovely, soft yellow.

Cast on 120 stitches
Row 1-4: *K4, p4, rep from * across
Row 5 & 7: P2, *k4, p4, end p2
Row 6 & 8: K2, *p4, k4, end k2
Row 9-12: *P4, k4
Row 13 & 15: Repeat Row 6
Row 14 & 16: Repeat Row 5

Repeat rows 1-16 for pattern until afghan reaches desired length. End with row 4, 8, 12 or 16. Bind off all stitches.

I was wondering if you could help me out... I picked a random blog and you popped up!

I am new to Blogger, how do I put my picture on my blog next to my name? I can't figure it out!

Hi Chris,

I checked out your blog- Crossing the Threshold- and saw where you figured out how to post your picture. Well done and blog on!
