Granny Hexagon Baby Blankie

Lion Brand« Baby's First®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1-3 of pattern = about 5 1/2 in. (14 cm).

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:

STRIPE SEQUENCE
Work 2 rnds each with A, B, C, and D.

NOTES:

1. Blankie is worked in joined rnds, beg at the center, changing color following the Stripe Sequence.

Granny Hexagon Baby Blankie Reviewed by Jenny on 2013-07-09 **
17 rounds is not big enough for a baby blanket. I didn't even use half the yarn so I kept going.
