Blue Lagoon 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.

Blue Lagoon Blanket Reviewed by Colleen Russell on 2011-06-30 *****
I love making this blanket for newborns! It's so soft and they always need something to cuddle up with. I made one change though. I added one more step to the stripe pattern. I worked 6 rows with 1 strand B and 1 strand C. The stripes made more sense to me that way. Easy and fun!
