The entire blanket is made from knit and purl combos. You will learn seed stitch, basket weave stitch, and the Greek key design. A chart is included for each. Super Bulky Version using a yarn at the top of the #6 range that gets a gauge of 2 stitches/2.35 rows/” produces a blanket that measures 40”X 40”. If the gauge is 3 sts/4r/”, using a #5 yarn the blanket will measure about 27” X 27”, which is a popular size for baby blankets. Using #4 yarn that gets 4 sts/5r/” the blanket will measure about 20” X 20” which is often used for preemies or beloved dolls. Expect variation due to exact yarn choice and personal knitting style. See the end of the pattern for size adjustments and metric conversions. If you cannot match the gauge but are not particular about size, it is fine to just knit this blanket at whatever gauge you can achieve. Super Bulky sample was made on a Kiss regular gauge loom with 19 peg sides and 21 peg ends. The super bulky version would be a real challenge on the small gauge loom, though probably not impossible. The other gauges will knit fine on the small gauge loom.
