Intarsia Polka-Dot Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

17 sts + 26 rows = 4” in Stockinette Stitch (knit one row, purl one row) 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.

This blanket is made of 5 panels.

Intarsia Polka-Dot Baby Blanket Reviewed by Sarah Johnsonbaugh on 2011-01-31 ***
I was a relatively new knitter when I made this and did not know a lot about yarns. The blanket turned out very nice - However, WHY would you make a baby blanket out of yarn that is not machine wash/dryable? I spent a TON of time on a blanket that I washed and became a giant Fuzz ball!
I know that it's my own fault, but it's frustrating none-the-less. I wish I had known to use different yarn! The picture was taken prior to washing, where it shrank and became so fuzzy.
