GAUGE:

18 sts + 34 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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

Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:

1. Blanket is made up of 30 individual Squares.

All Squares are knit following instructions for Garter Square, with specific color(s) noted for each Square.

2. A yarn over (yo) creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle.

Do not use an existing stitch to make a yarn over.

The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting - this is part of this design.
