Knitting Blanket with Sz 19 Straight Needles..
Hi I am knitting a blanket for my aunt with size US 19 needles, 14 inches long, I don't know where I found a pattern online but it said to cast on 60 stitches...I did using 2 strands of yarn, I am about 13 inches down and I was wondering how can I make a good guess how wide it's going to be. I am still confused on the gauge alittle, there was nothing on my needle packaging that told me how many stitches would make what width. I am using 100% acrylic yarn double strands. Sensations Classic Rainbow in green from Johann Fabrics...I am happy with the blanket so far but wondering how far should I go down if I don't know what the width will be? I didn't like using circular needles because I joined my round and I like the straight needles better, Anyone else knit blankets on straight needles? thanks
