Cuddle Tight Baby Blanket

Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick

GAUGE:

10 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting with straight needles.

Row 1: Knit.

Cuddle Tight Baby Blanket Reviewed by Jan Creed on 2013-10-14 ****
I agree with the previous review that I did not care for the flimsiness of the beginning and ending corners. I cast on the number of stitches instructed by the pattern and then knit two rows before beginning the pattern and also knitted two rows before binding off. I found this to be much sturdier than the original pattern.
