I knit this up last week and it looks wonderful. I'm a tight knitter and used #7 needles. I love the way it looks and plan on making a bunch of these as thank you gifts for my deaf dd's teachers and friends. In fact, I liked it so much, I'm getting the whole alphabet. Thank you for sharing this with us! :)

Sally said...

Thanks for this pattern. You will never know what it means to me.

Debbie1085 said...

I AM VERY HAPPY I CAME ACROSS THIS PATTERN BECAUSE I AM A DEAF KNITTER AND THIS WOULD BE A WONDERFUL FOR GIFT GIVING...

Hello Amy-Lynne
I love the pattern for Savannah's blanket. I would like to know what brand and weight of acrylic yarn that you used. It only says acrylic yarn on the pattern.
Thank you,
Nancy

Beth said...

Hi! Great pattern! :) I had some trouble with the first one I made...didn't realize the size of needles would make a difference....

as I'm starting my second one...I am just noticing that the pattern pretty much lists odd numbered rows 7,9,11,13 etc....

am i missing something as a beginer knitter? or do the rows count as two?

thanks for your help!

Beth

amy-lynne......... said...

Beth,
the even rows 2468&0 you knit the whole row... the pattern rows are 1357&9... hope this helps ya.

Judy said...

what is the finished measurement of your ILY dishcloth. I am knitting it, and Im half way and it measure already 6 inches. I think I did something wrong. HELP!!!

amy-lynne......... said...

Judy,
on size US6 needles it came to be 7" x 7"... on US8 it came to be 9" x 9"... if you are a loose knitter you could try and go down 1 or 2 sizes in needles... other than that i have no clue as to why it is being so big for you... wish i was more help for you

Judy said...

Ok thanks Amy. I did use a size 6 needle for this dishcloth,just love those bamboo needles btw.
I think I may take it apart and start over. I know I have a size 4 needle but no 5's.
Also, Ive been trying to do the knit rows using the continental type knitting, which Im new at so this may be making it a looser stitch than the other way, because I just found out I have carpal tunnel in each wrist. egads.
Im hoping they do surgery on at least my right wrist, but I had to get a cortisone shot in it to start this process which i got yesterday. thanks.. I will go back tothe drawing board. I am late deafened,so we use the ILY sign here at home still even tho I was implanted with a cochlear implant 12 yrs ago.
sorry to be so chatty... and thanks again for your reply....hugsss... JUDY.

amy-lynne......... said...

Judy,
no problem... changing from one technique to another can cause the loose stitches... i have always been hard of hearing and deaf in right ear in adulthood... don't over-do it with carpal tunnel... i am here if you need anything else... or you can private message me at
frogiez01@yahoo.com...
thanks again and keep me informed on how it goes with using the smaller needles

Is the sign used in I Love You blanket also the sign used in Hawaii? I just surfed on to your site and want to compliment you for such awesome work in making your designs! Wish I had a graph to follow to change colors of yarn when making "The Tongue"! Would make a pillow...

ann.yount@gmail.com

amy-lynne......... said...

hey Anonymous,
i have never been asked that about Hawaii... i have absolutely no clue, wish i could help you out there.... i don't know what site you got the tongue pattern from but that one should have the chart attached to it at the top... if you send me a e-mail to frogiez01@yahoo.com (put the pattern your doing in the subject line so i don't miss it) i will send you the chart... all of my stuff is one color so the best i can do is send you the chart i made for it and you can take it from there... hope this helps... have a great day... amy-lynne
