For any one who has made this (http://majorknitter.typepad.com/photos/patterns/oh_so_soft_baby_blanket.html) blanket, HOW BIG IS IT? The lady listed neither the size, nor the guage. :??

I would think that if you're doubling the yarn, you'd get about three stitches to the inch. So, with 80 st across, that would be about 27 inches wide, right?

Ditto! :shock: And, Ingrid's math kind of threw me for a loop - sorry, sometimes I'm not mathematically incline. :oops:

Did I do something wrong?

I figured that if you have 80 stitches cast on across, and if there are three stitches per inch, then you divide 3 into 80 and get about 27 inches. No?

There's nothing wrong with the math; I could have done that myself. The point was that no guage was listed. Allow me to rephrase my question: Has anyone made this blanket with the specified yarn and needle size? If so, approximately how big was the blanket?

I approximated the gauge. Two strands of sport would be about worsted, and on size 15 needles in my guesstimate would be about 3 per inch.

Is there an error in the Blankets Border? 1st and 2nd Rows are K1, P1 until end??

Shouldn't the even rows be P1, K1?

I might knit this too and keep it on hand for some future baby.

Thanks for reading,
Ann

I says the border is in seed stitch, so you would want it that way.

Ribbing would have k1, p1 and then p1, k1
