16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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.
Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Knit Blanket back and forth in rows as if knitting with straight needles.

I've been knitting for less than a year, so this is perfect for me and my limited abilities! I love to watch it "grow" as I add the yarn over stitches and then "shrink" as I decrease! I've knitted two of these and they come out really pretty....love the clean and simple look of the end result, but the edge gives it a little added elegant touch.
