Compact Car Blanket

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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, including borders, is knit in one piece.
2. Blanket is worked in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS), with 4 sts at the beginning and end of each row worked in Garter st (k every row) for borders. Stitch markers are used to separate the border sts.
3. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
4. Straps are knit separately and are used to secure Blanket when it is rolled for storage.

Compact Car Blanket Reviewed by Tina on 2013-12-10 *****
I made this blanket my mother for Christmas. The perfect gift for someone that travels often through the year, especially during the cold Canadian months!
