CORRECTIONS: (applied Jul 24, 2014)
yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

Note: Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting working on straight needles.
The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

GAUGE:

14 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.

Soft, Easy Baby Throw Reviewed by Attitudegrrrl on 2013-07-10 *****
I made this blanket for a co-worker's baby shower. Although she's having a girl I used the limeade colorway (no pink --oops!!) Anyway I loved how it came out and the pattern is great. I'm thinking of making a bigger one for myself!
Thank you Lion Brand!!
