Description

Garter Stitch was the stitch of choice for many grandmothers when knitting for babies. Times haven’t changed that much. The blankets in this book are knitted in garter stitch to give the soft texture that is sure to make a baby feel oh so good. The finishing touches may be as much or as little as you choose.

A sport weight yarn works great.  I like to add a little interest by using 2 strands of different  yarns.

  • 1 strand of Cristal + 1 strand of 3 Ply – tension 10
  • 1 strand of Cristal + 1 strand of Kitty – tension 10
  • 1 strand of Sport works likely – tension 9

Amount:  about 16 ounces
