Speed Hook Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®


6 single crochet = 4 in. [10 cm], 6 rows = 3˝ in. [9 cm] with 1 strand each of A, B and C held together. Due to the nature of the fabric when working with a Speed Hook, gauge may vary throughout. 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

Work with 1 strand each of A, B and C held together throughout.
Chain 55.
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 54 single crochet.
Row 2: Chain 1, turn, single crochet in each single crochet across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 24 in. [61 cm] from beginning. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Speed Hook Baby Blanket Reviewed by Jennifer Foleen on 2013-04-03 ****
I used a size Q hook and that worked out fine for the pattern's gauge. This blanket does turn out to feel pretty heavy so I just hope it's not too warm for a baby. Cotton Ease feels nice and isn't fuzzy which should keep it from getting caught on a lot of things, but it is pretty common to find multiple splices per ball.
