Hooded Bobble Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

12 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in seed st. 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 Bobble Baby Blanket Reviewed by Sandi Kritzman on 2010-04-06 ****
I just finished this blanket in green and it came out nicely. The thing I like best about it is that it can be used as a regular blanket; or it can be used with the hood as in the photo. I would suggest to anybody who may want to make this blanket, to knit the edge stitches in such a way that a nice, neat chain stitch forms on the sides, (it looks to me as if that was done based on the photo.)because the sides are exposed. Although there are different ways of achieving that, I slipped the last edge stitch of each row as if to purl with the yarn in front and I knit the first edge stitch of each row through the back loop.
