8 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every row) with 1 strand each of A and B held tog. 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.

So cute in STRIPES!!! Reviewed by Dar Brown on 2011-05-22
This is a quick and simple pattern, perfect for gifts! I've made it a number of times in Homespun, but this time I tried STRIPES in Baby's First cotton bulky-weight yarn. I used 2 skeins each of Beanstalk and Fairy Tale. With size 11 needles, the blanket measures about 28" along each edge. Have fun! --Darla in California
