Knit Baby Set

Lion Brand® Pound of Love®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS);
18 sts + 35 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

PATTERN STITCH (BLANKET)
Seed Stitch (over an even number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: P the knit sts, and k the purl sts. Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

NOTES:

1. Cardigan yoke and sleeves are worked horizontally, then stitches are picked up across edge of yoke for back and fronts.
2. Blanket is worked in one piece.
3. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts for the Blanket. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
4. Garter st (k every row) does not have a definite right side. When dividing for Cardigan neck, decide which side you'd like to be the RS and mark it with a stitch marker or piece of yarn.


CARDIGAN

Beg at right sleeve cuff, cast on 36 (42, 46, 50, 54) sts.
Work in Garter st (k every row) until piece measures 5 1/2 (6 1/2, 7 1/2, 10 1/2, 11) in. (14 (16.5, 19, 26.5, 28) cm) from beg. Place markers at each edge of last row for placement of back and fronts.

Note: End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.

Knit Baby Set Reviewed by patricia hardesty on 2014-03-23 ****
I just got thru knitting this , instructions were a little tricky to visualize how this was to go together, had a friend from Wales decipher it for me, went together pretty smooth after that
