Sweet Cherries Blanket

Lion Brand® Babysoft® - Microspun

GAUGE:

14 stitches + 24 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter stitch (knit every row) with 1 strand of A and 1 strand of C held together. 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.

Sweet Cherries Blanket Reviewed by K. Gellis on 2011-08-19 *****
I made this blanket about four years ago for my daughter. I made it using the recommended yarns and followed the pattern except that I made it a little larger. It is still a very nice blanket. It is warm, hefty, and very soft. I also like that the colors and pattern are relatively timeless, so they aren't going out of style too quickly. They have not faded, and I see no staining. It cleans up well, since the fibers are synthetic. It has some fuzzies, pilling, but surprisingly few. I hate pilling, but this blanket is not bad. I don't wash it too often, and I treat it kindly when I do. I have to say that it has held up very well. It's sweet!!
