Super Easy Baby Blanket
- 7 skeins of Alchemy Yarns' Temple, 100% superfine superwash merino wool. These colors from the top are Lantern, Citrine, Silver, Moonstone, Platinum, Topaz, and Kai's Goldfish
- A US #7 circular needle, 24 or 32 inches long.
- Atapestry needle.
20 stitches and 20 ridges = 4 inches in garter stitch
Approximately 26 inches x 28 inches
With a US #7 needle (or size required by you to acheive the correct gauge) and the first color, loosely cast on 130 stitches. Knit every row until you have knit the entire skein (which should be 18-22 garter stitch "ridges" [1 ridge = 2 rows]). Switch to the second color at the beginning of the next row, and knit every row until you have knit the entire skein. Repeat with each color, making sure to always switch colors on the same side. After knitting the seventh color, loosely bind off. Weave in the ends and you're done! Super easy! This yarn is superwash which means you can safely put it in the washer and dryer. However, if you've used any bright saturated colors (especially reds), you may want to add white distilled vinegar to your first wash in order to "set" the dyes. I read somewhere to add 3 cups; that seems like a lot, but it can't hurt!
