Faux Patchwork Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Babysoft®

GAUGE:

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

V-STITCH EMBROIDERY
V-st Embroidery is worked back and forth between adjoining Strips to join, then across color change lines. V-Stitch Embroidery is worked in 2 steps:

Step 1
Thread large-eyed blunt needle with a length of C, doubled. Working from left to right, work diagonal sts (as when doing cross stitch), spaced about ½ in. (1 cm) apart, across seam or color change line.
/ / / / /

Step 2
Working from right to left, and inserting needle into same spaces (beginning and ending points) as Step 1 sts, work diagonal sts in the opposite direction of Step 1 sts. \ \ \ \ \
When completed, Step 1 and Step 2 stitches will form a "\/"

BLANKET
STRIPS I AND V

With A, cast on 35 sts. Working in Garter st (k every row), work 5 in. (12.5 cm) each with A, B, C, B and A. Bind off.

STRIPS II AND IV
With B, cast on 35 sts. Working in Garter st (k every row), work 5 in. (12.5 cm) each with B, C, A, C and B. Bind off.

STRIP III
With C, cast on 35 sts. Working in Garter st (k every row), work 5 in. (12.5 cm) each with C, A, C, A and C. Bind off.

FINISHING
Lay Strips out in numerical order from left to right. With C, join strips with V-stitch Embroidery. Once strips are joined, work V-Stitch Embroidery across Blanket color change lines, to create a "faux patchwork." With C, work Blanket stitch along outside edge of Blanket, working 3 sts in each corner.
Weave in ends.
