Well ... I've sort of landed myself with a proper pickle. A lady has asked me to mend a baby blanket she borrowed from a friend. She said it was crochet and sent it. It has arrived and ... it's knitted.
I am a very confident and (I hope) competent crocheter but my knitting is, at best, intermediate. I've been trying to mend the blanket and I can figure out most of the stitches, I believe, but not all of them and not how they fit together. It doesn't seem to be a terrifically hard pattern and I'm hoping someone with more experience than me will be able to sort it out quite easily ... :-s
Soooooo, I'm looking for a brilliant knitter who can look at the photos below and extract a pattern repeat for me. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do the rest. (There's a bit of the edging that's damaged too now I look at it ... Bugger! No picture of that, yet.)
Anyway, if you can help you are the most wonderful person the world had ever known, flowers will open where you tread, birds will sing your name, the very sun will shine from you ... and I'll be grateful.

- String Theory Crochet is about family. My mum, Lynn, is a brilliant and experienced crocheter who taught me everything I know. I remember her teaching classes at our house when I was little. We now work together just crocheting like crazy. We have just begun to share our little blog and we are trying to persuade (bully) other family members to post too. My mother-in-law, Dot, and partner, Stu, are both learning and my dad spins and creates his own yarns. If you're wondering about our name - my mum and I were both teachers. She taught physics so the reference is for her and I taught English so the play on words is for me. We'd love your comments and suggestions and please come across to our FB page too where you can find regular mini-updates about our crochet. Victoria x
