Glorious Colors Blanket

Lion Brand« Jiffy®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 10 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). 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.

Glorious Colors Blanket Reviewed by Amanda Paul on 2012-10-12 ****
This was my first real project that I made. I made it for my Dad. Was supposed to be a birthday present...but I got it done too soon and was too excited to wait any longer. Great for beginngers - taught me knit and purl sts and blocking. And my Dad loved it.
