Rest Here Like a Child (pt. 4)

Welcome back! It’s time to begin the finishing process for your basket weave baby blanket (step 1, step 2, step 3)! Be sure to check back for the final post, as it gives special instructions for blocking.

  1. Be sure you leave enough room for the last 5 rows to be your edge (about one inch if you’re using the same size yarn/needles as me).
  2. Once you’ve made your blanket as long as you want, with room for the last 5 rows of edge, begin the edge.
  3. Remember the edge pattern is the seed stitch ribbing (k1 p1 k1 p1)
  4. Continue this for the entire edge

If you want help counting rows, check out this video. Also take a look at this video for more information for other essential tools.


“When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said, “This is a deserted place and it is already late; dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.” [Jesus] said to them, “There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves.” But they said to him, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.” Then he said, “Bring them here to me,” and he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the fragments left over – twelve wicker baskets full. Those who ate were about five thousand men, not counting women and children.” – Matthew 14: 15-21

Christ desires you so deeply, so earnestly, that He looks at your sins, and wants to redeem. This passage happens right after the death of John the Baptist, one of Christ’s closest friends. He goes up a mountain to mourn, but when His disciples approach Him to tell Him about the hungry people, He descends the mountain, and fills their need. Christ wants to feed you to the full. Give Him your heart, and allow Him to hold, replenish, and fill you.
