Little Super Hero Blanket

Lion Brand« Hometown USA«

GAUGE:

8 dc + 5 rnds = about 5 in. (12.5 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:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Body of Blanket is worked with RS facing throughout.
2. Star is worked separately and sewed to Blanket.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st. Fasten off old color.

Little Super Hero Blanket Reviewed by Kimberly Burkan on 2014-10-02 ****
Easy pattern to follow. Very dense blanket and almost too heavy for a blanket.
