Happy Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4" (10 cm) in garter st (knit every row). 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:

ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and k them tog.

NOTES:

1 ridge = 2 rows garter st.

Count ridges with RS facing.

COLOR SEQUENCE
2 ridges MC, 3 ridges CC1, 4 ridges MC, 3 ridges CC2, **4 ridges MC, 3 ridges CC1, 4 ridges MC, 3 ridges CC2**; repeat from ** to ** for color sequence.
