Be sure to buy additional yarn if you plan to add length to your blanket.

This pattern may also be used with DK, worsted or Aran weight yarns. Select the needle size that gives the best appearance for your yarn. Finished size and amount of yarn needed may vary depending on yarn choice and gauge….so buy extra yarn just in case!

GAUGE:

Garter stitch with US size 9 needles: approximately 14 stitches = 4”

Exact gauge is not essential.

I used US size 9 knitting needles…but choose the needle size that gives the best appearance with your yarn and your knitting tension. For best appearance, knitting should be fairly tight.

CIRCULAR NEEDLES:

Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on circular knitting needles.

In order to accommodate the large number of stitches, long circular needles are recommended.

SKILL LEVEL: Easy

You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends.

This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms.

Written pattern with row by row instructions.
