GAUGE:
16 sts + 24 rows in pattern = 4 inches [10 cm] on size 8 [5 mm] needles 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
This blanket uses the pretty 'purl ridges' stitch pattern.

Using the crochet hook, draw a single (single, double) strand of yarn through each stitch at the end of the blanket and knot it for fringe.

Trim to a length that is in scale with the blanket (for the small version, we trimmed to roughly 1/4 inch [1 cm]).

If needed, use a steam iron set to low temperature to block blanket into shape.

Every effort has been made to have the knitting and crochet instructions accurate and complete. We cannot be responsible for variance of individual knitters and crocheters, human errors, or typographical mistakes.
