Hooded Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Pound of Love®


3.75 sts = 1inches on Size J hook. 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.

Hooded Baby Blanket Reviewed by Judy Crumrine on 2013-11-27 *****
I have made over a dozen of these blankets. My son and daughter always want to give one to their friends that are having babies. I find that the new mothers love it because it is easy to keep the baby's head covered. Love the stitch design and it goes really fast.
