Neptune Baby Throw

Lion Brand® Babysoft®

GAUGE:

16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row) with 1 strand each of A and B held togther. 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

NOTES:

1. Throw is worked with 1 strand each of A and B held tog throughout.
2. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Knit Throw back and forth in rows as if knitting with straight needles.

THROW
With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K3, yo, k2.
Row 3: K3, yo, k3.
Row 4: K3, yo, k to end of row.
Rep last row until you have 160 sts on needle.
Next (decrease) row: K2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end of row.
Rep last row until 5 sts remain. Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Neptune Baby Throw Reviewed by M. M. Monaghan on 2014-01-03 *****
So good to see this pattern. I have used the same pattern for cotton wash clothes for years, and never thought to translate to baby blanket! So easy, and stretchy when done.

Probably good early project for a little girl to make a doll blanket.
