children's blanket 3 - musical chairs

 

 
 

child_afghan_musical_chairs


This is a very portable and enjoyable blanket to knit, made in strips and woven together. The hounds-tooth pattern is worked by slipping stitches and therefore much easier than intarsia. The scalloped crochet edge adds an attractive finishing touch.
On the photo Color A is pink (5 balls) and Color B is black (4 balls). There are so many interesting combinations.

FINISHED SIZE:
Approximate size including scallop: 29 inches wide x 34 inches long



YARN USED FOR SAMPLE:
Rowan Yarns - Cashsoft dk
57% extra fine merino, 33% acrylic microfibre, 10% cashmere
50 gram skeins - 142 yards each

5 balls Color A approximately 710 yards
4 balls Color B approximately 568 yards

For the blanket to be the correct size, it is not the brand of yarn that matters, but the GAUGE that is important.

It is best to refer to the yardage to determine how many skeins or balls to purchase.



NEEDLES:
size 6 straight needles or size needles to obtain the correct gauge
size F crochet hook



OTHER NOTIONS:
gauge ruler
tapestry needle



GAUGE:
Before Pressing:
30 stitches and 38 rows in box stitch = 5.25 inches wide x 4.25 inches long, on size 6 needles

After Pressing:
30 stitches and 38 rows in box stitch = 5.25 inches wide x 5.5 inches long, on size 6 needles

You should use the recommended gauge, but it does not have to be as precise as for a sweater. If you are knitting tighter than the recommended gauge, the blanket will be smaller and use less yarn. If you are knitting looser than the recommended gauge, the blanket will be larger and use more yarn. Try different size needles if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.



SKILL LEVEL:
