A lovely summer blanket in one color or more, simple stockinette stitch with a gentle ruffle for fun. Imagine it in summer tan and ivory. Enjoy.
Size: approx. 34” x 24” + 2” for the ruffle.
Yarn: 3 colors (a, b, & c) of any worsted weight cotton or cotton blend that is light weight - 350 yds color a; 350 yds color b; 250 yds color c.
Needles: size 7 (us) or size needed to obtain the correct gauge. One smaller size needle (size 2, 3 or 4) for picking up sts for the ruffles.
Gauge: 4 sts & 6 1/2 rows = 1” in stockinette st (st st) on larger needles.
Because this is a blanket, gauge is not critical.
Note: cut yarn after each stripe is completed, leaving at least 6 for weaving in later.
