Ridged Block Blanket

Lion Brand« Casey

GAUGE:

20 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

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:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

NOTES:

1. Blanket is made up of joined Blocks worked in rows starting with Block 1 at lower right hand corner and ending with block 40 at upper left hand corner.
2. New Blocks are added by picking up stitches along edges of previous Blocks.
3. Stitches of each Block are decreased until no stitches remain.
4. Before beginning, review the Assembly Diagram to understand the construction of this Blanket.
5. Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of edging sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Ridged Block Blanket Reviewed by Carol Rosene on 2014-08-06 *****
I also question the easy skill level for this blanket but it turned out to be my great grandsons "blankey". It is a very pretty and impressive gift.
