'Little Victory' Blanket

Lion Brand® Homespun® Baby


4 V-sts + 5 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in V-st 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


V-Stitch (Dc, ch 1, dc) in same stitch.


Blanket is worked from side to side.


Ch 88.

Row 1 (Dc, ch 1, dc) in 5th ch from hook, [skip 2 ch, work V-st in next ch] across to last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, dc in last ch – 28 V-sts and dc at each end of row.

Row 2 Ch 3, turn; work V-st in each ch1-space across, end dc in top of turning chain.

Repeat Row 2 for V-st pattern until there are a total of 34 rows; ch 1 (instead of ch 3), turn. DO NOT FASTEN OFF.


Sc in each dc and ch1-space across, end 3 sc in last dc; rotate to side, sc evenly along side edge, 3 sc in first ch of foundation ch; sc in each ch across, 3 sc in last ch; sc evenly along rem side edge, end 2 sc in top of last row turning chain, join with slip st to top of first sc.

Picot Edging

(Ch 2, slip st in second ch from hook, skip 1 sc, slip st in next 2 sc) around, adjusting for corners and end of rnd.

'Little Victory' Blanket Reviewed by Sabrina Jaye on 2011-10-21 *****
For my first project, I made this blanket and loved how it turned out. I made the size just a little larger and used a velour yarn so I could use it for a lap wrap for my mother. I do plan to make two more the right size before May for the my first grandchildren~~~twins! It was fast and easy!
