Circular needle size 13 [9 mm], 29 in. (73.5 cm long)
Diagonal Tweed Baby Blanket
Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® Baby
10 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter st (knit every row). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
NOTE: Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting with straight needles.
