Delightful Tweed Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


10 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (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


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

With 1 strand of each of A and B held together, cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K 3, yo, k 2 – 6 sts.
Row 3: K 3, yo, k 3 – 7 sts..
Row 4: K 3, yo, k to end of row.
Repeat last row until you have 99 sts.
Next (decrease) row: K 2, k2 tog, yo, k2 tog, k to end of row.
Repeat last row until 5 sts remain. Bind off.

Weave in ends.

k = knit k2tog = knit 2 together
st(s) = stitch(es) yo = yarn over
