children's blanket 4 - follow the leader




I originally designed the sampler baby blanket before the birth of my first grandchild. Since then hundred of prospective moms and grandmothers have knit this blanket; many in my New York City Shop the woolgathering and many more in knitting in scottsdale.

The blanket is knit in strips, and then crocheted together. All the contrasting color is worked after completion, following very easy instructions.

32.5 inches wide x 36 inches long


10 balls Plymouth Yarns – dk merino superwash
100% extra fine merino
50 grams—130 yards each

Two shades of blue or pink dk weight 20g each

For the afghan 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.

size 6 or size needles to obtain the correct gauge
Cable needle
Size G crochet hook
Two size 2 double pointed needles

gauge ruler
tapestry needle

22-24 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on size 6 needles; or size needles to obtain the correct gauge.

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.

  Projects with a variety of stitches, such as basic cables    and lace, simple intarsia, double-pointed needles and   knitting in the round needle techniques, mid-level   shaping and finishing.
