Diagonal Pattern Baby Blanket

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

9 sts and 18 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in garter stitch (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

Cast on 5 stitches. Knit 1 row.
Next row

Diagonal Pattern Baby Blanket Reviewed by LINDA V SHEPHERD on 2013-10-03 *****
I recently made this blanket in blue blends for a friend who is going to be a grannie for the first time. She loved it and took it to her daughter in law. The father to be is in the Navy and everyone is hoping he will get home before the baby is due. The blanket is so easy to knit - one of those things you can knit and watch TV and the finished project is very professional looking not to mention very soft and comfy.
