Knit Puff Doggy Blanket

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® - PolarSpun

GAUGE:

18 sts + 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 

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

NOTES:

Blanket is worked in St st with Garter st (k every row) borders. All squares are knit in St st.

Work each block with a separate ball of yarn.

Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes when changing colors.

Dog motifs are embellished after Blanket is finished.

following placement Chart 3, work 4 blocks of 31 sts each; join separate ball of A and work 4 sts Garter st.

Continue following Chart 3, keeping 4 sts at each end of Blanket in Garter st with A. When all blocks are complete, work in Garter st for 1" with A for top border.

Bind off all sts on WS.

This pattern was easy to follow and turned out absolutely beautifully. I made it for my grandson's keepsake blanket. Highly recommend it.
