Knit Sweater Blanket

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Homespun® - Wool-Ease®


About 4 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 1 strand of each yarn held together. Due to the nature of the fabric when working with Speed Stix, gauge may vary throughout the knitting and is not crucial to this project. EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
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

With 1 strand of each yarn held together, cast on 30 sts. Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures 12 in. [30.5 cm] from beg, end with a RS row.
Next Row (WS - turning row): Knit.
Knit next row (RS) and continue in St st until piece measures 72 in. [183 cm] from beg. Bind off.

FINISHING Fold piece along turning row. Tack each corner of folded section to WS of Blanket. Weave in ends.

beg = begin(s)(ning) k = knit
p = purl RS = right side

Knit Sweater Blanket Reviewed by Darcy on 2015-06-25 *****
I made a sampler one for my Prayer Shawl Ministry group so they can see what it looks like when done. I loved making it. Only issue is they say tack which I am not sure how to do but the rest of it was easy and fun. Good gift idea for those hard to buy for people. You can also use different colors I made mine with white and blue to make the construction and the different yarns stood out. the pic is not fully finished, not weaved in or tacked yet.
