10 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. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting with straight needles.

Bright Nursery Baby Throw Reviewed by Judith Rose on 2013-02-02
I absolutely LOVE this pattern and have knit it several times for friends. I sometimes knit a long i-cord to weave through the eyelets along the side, tying them into a a bow where they meet. Sometimes I buy contrasting ribbon to weave through the holes and then tie them in a bow. Sometimes I knit with a lighter weight white yarn and the main color (so I'm knitting with double strand). This lightens up the main color and gives a variegated effect. Again, I LOVE this very easy pattern.
