14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every row). 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.
Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting on straight needles.

Good for practicing continental style knitting. Reviewed by Pamela Manning on 2013-11-09
I would call myself an advanced beginner. I am an "American" style knitter and I'm using this pattern to practice "Continental" technique. The biggest problem I have with adjusting from American to Continental is keeping my tension even. Because this pattern is garter stitch throughout, my slight unevenness is well hidden as I improve and the blanket is coming out beautifully.
