Simply Perfect Baby Set

Lion Brand® Pound of Love®


19 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on 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

Cast on 88 stitches.
Knit 10 rows.
Begin working in pattern stitch as follows:
Row 1: Knit 4, *knit 10, purl 10; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, knit last 4 stitches.
Rows 2-12: Repeat Row 1.
Row 13: Knit 4, *purl 10, knit 10; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, knit last 4 stitches.
Rows 14-24: Repeat Row 13.
Repeat Rows 1-24 five more times.
Knit 10 rows.
Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Cast on 80 stitches.
Work in Garter Stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 8 in. (20.5 cm) from beginning. Bind off, leaving a long tail.

Fold piece in half and use long tail to sew the 8 in. (20.5 cm) sides together. Flatten Hat with seam at center back. Sew through both layers to join center front to center back at seam. Bring center of each side in to meet at top of Hat and sew together. Four ‘teardrop’ openings will remain at top of Hat. Weave in ends.

BOOTIES (make 2)
Cast on 26 stitches.
Work in Garter Stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 4 in. (10 cm) from beginning.
Next Row: *Knit next 2 stitches together, repeat from * across row - 13 stitches remain at end of row.
Knit 1 row.
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail into large-eyed blunt needle, then thread needle through the remaining 13 stitches. Pull to gather stitches together and knot yarn to secure. With same yarn, sew open edges of Bootie together from toe to within 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) of opposite end of Bootie.

Sew remaining end of Bootie for back seam. Weave in ends.
Cut an 18 in. (46 cm) strand of yarn. Thread strand into large-eyed blunt needle, and weave through open edge of Bootie, beginning and ending at toe. Repeat for second Bootie.
Tassels (make 4)
Wrap a strand of yarn around cardboard 10 times. Cut yarn leading from ball. Cut a 4 in. (10 cm) length of yarn, slide under strands and one end of cardboard and tie tightly. Cut yarn strands at opposite end and remove cardboard. Tie a tassel to each end of Laces.

Reviewed by bigreyballcloud on 2013-12-31 *****
Wonderful classic basket weave. I made this little blankie/changing pad shortly after seeing a similar blanket in a magazine. The inspiration to do this project came from seeing baby Jake Jake Kennedy with the exact blanket in an old photograph. I used a pound of love in baby yellow and had extra for many matching pieces to come.
