Multicolor Baby Throw
Lion Brand^{®} Baby Wool
GAUGE: 18 sts + 34 rows = 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.
Making a Gauge Swatch
NOTES: 1. Blanket is made up of 30 individual Squares. All Squares are knit following instructions for Garter Square, with specific color(s) noted for each Square.
2. A yarn over (yo) creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle. Do not use an existing stitch to make a yarn over. The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting  this is part of this design.

Multicolor Baby Throw Reviewed by Nancy on 20130623 

On square #21 now. I liked the pattern because it's the same as I use on my handknit wash clothes. I did buy the Lion Brand Baby Wool (~$90 when purchased through Walmart). I love this yarn but agree with the previous writer that it's a bit expensive, however its for my new granddaughter and hopefully will be a forever blanket :). Square MUST be blocked to get a good square. Will upload a pic when the project is complete.
