A Call for Help
See this? It's my nephew's. My Aunt Geraldine made it for him when he was born. She passed away not long after. My nephew loves it. As you see. My sister has requested perhaps a replacement for it so that this one may be put to rest and not further demolished. I know, it's the best compliment one can receive of a knitted object. To use it alot and love it so until it falls apart. But still, I've agreed to do it. But I need your help figuring out the pattern. Here's some up close shots: Near as I can tell, it involves wrapping 5 stitches an extra time or two, then knitting into all 5 stitches on the next round. Shit. If y'all confirm my fear that the entire thing is crocheted, I'm gonna die. It's not that I don't like to crochet, it's that I haven't really done it since I was a kid, aside from the pinwheel baby blanket edging. I mean, I know this thing has a crocheted border, but is the whole thing crocheted? Help! If you know the pattern stitch, I'd appreciate it. Better yet, if you know a knitted version, I'll love you for life.
