kit - children's blanket 4 - follow the leader

child_afghan_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.

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.
