My Favorite Blankie

Lion Brand« Babysoft« - Cupcake®

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STRIPE PATTERN
Work 6 rows with 1 strand of A and 1 strand of C.
Work 4 rows with 1 strand of A and 1 strand of D.

My Favorite Blankie Reviewed by Jan Brady on 2009-03-20 *****
I knitted this blanket in two yellow, two blue and two green wide stripes with the white yarn as the second strand. I gave it to our great grandson who was recently born. Because I had worked on it in many places, I washed it before I gave it to my granddaughter. The cupcake and babysoft yarns made a beautiful blanket and it even looked better after I washed it.
