Knitting tutorial

Hi sweet readers! It's Ingrid here. Today I want to share a birth card that I made. To embellish it I knitted a diaper and I'll show you how to do! I don't know if I use all the right English knitting terms, sorry for that, but it's really easy to do, so I hope the picture will show you the way.
This is my finished card. For the diaper you will need the following:
- cotton yarn
- knitting needles number 2
- a small locking pin
 You start with 3 stitches. Knit 1 row.
From the 2nd row (or the 3rd, if you count the starting row) you will add an extra stitch after the first and before the last stitch in every 2nd row. Add the extra stitch by picking up a stitch from the previous row, as you see on the picture above.
Keep on knitting this way until you have finished 13 tours (or 26 rows).
 Now you will have to tie off the stitches. I do this as follows; knit the first 2 stitches. 2 stitches on your right needle. Pull the 1st stitch on your right needle over the 2nd one. One stitch left on your right needle. Knit the 3rd stitch (on your left needle). 2 stitches on your right needle. Pull the 2nd stitch over the 3rd. One stitch left on your right needle.
And so on, until you have done all the stitches. 
Than you have 1 last stitch on your right needle. Make the loop bigger, cut the thread at 10 cm and pass through the loop. Attach the wires. Attach the points of your diaper together with a locking pin and your embellishment is ready to use!
Good luck, and I would love to hear if you like this tutorial :-)
Further details about the card can be find on my blog. Hope to see you again!

  5. Super leuk gedaan Ingrid! De beschrijving in het Engels is wel wat lastig voor mij. Mijn moeder is altijd erg handig, wie weet kan zij het aan de hand van de foto's wel zo namaken. Bedankt in ieder geval voor het delen. Liefs Marianne
