Country Cousins Blanket - Red Barn Colorway

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

13 stitches + 26 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter stitch (knit 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:

SQUARE
Cast on 32 stitches. Work in Garter stitch (knit every row) for 62 rows (31 ridges). Bind off. Square measures 10 x 10 in. [25.5 x 25.5 cm].


BLANKET
Make 5 Squares with A and 4 Squares with B.

FINISHING
Arrange squares in 3 rows of 3 squares each, alternating colors (A squares at corners and center) and direction of Garter stitch. Using C and large-eye blunt needle, whipstitch squares together. Whipstitch around the outside edges. Weave in ends.

Country Cousins Blanket - Red Barn Colorway Reviewed by CECI FLORES on 2012-03-04 ****
I, like many others find that stitching pieces together is the least enjoyable thing about knitting or crocheting, so when I made this blanket, I started out as the pattern states, THEN continued on with the next color and then back to the 1st color, in a long "strip" instead of "squares". That way I only had to stitch 2 strips together instead of 9 blocks. Worked for me.
