Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 24 sts (about 4 inch) over Rows 1 through 24 to knit a blanket that measures about 25 inch x 28 inch. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.

    Notes:
    Blanket is worked in one piece.
    Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
