#2 KAL starts January 12

The TKE staff has been working hard to write up stitch patterns for our new Sampler Baby Blanket. If you want to get a head start- here ya go! You will need 3–100g balls of worsted weight yarn. We strongly suggest Encore Worsted, Comfort Worsted, or Neve Cotton. 24″ size 7 needles will be the most likely needle choice. Working at 4.5 sts =1″, cast on 108 sts. Work in garter st (knit every row) for 10 rows. You will now be ready to begin the first stripe- a pattern that will be released in Tuesdays newsletter.
There will be 8-10 horizontal pattern stripes (yeah you could change colors too if you want). Each stripe will be designed by one of our staff. The baby size blanket (about 24″ x 28″) will take just 3 —100g balls (600yards) of a worsted weight yarn- Encore, Comfort, Weekend or Neve. I will later enlarge the pattern for a adult size throw.
So please pick out your yarn now and check your gauge (18 sts =4″ over st st).
The first stripe pattern will be released on Tuesday Jan 12.
