lion brand® ice cream® big scoop® kerry baby knit afghan

Knit a little afghan that’s as warm and bright as a summer day! This small blanket is the perfect size for adorable babies and rambunctious toddlers alike. Since it’s made with Lion Brand® Ice Cream® Big Scoop® yarn, it’s terrifically soft, too. You’ll make this little ray of sunshine (the blanket, not the baby!) all in one piece on circular needles. Read on below to find out how.
Step 1
MEASUREMENTS: About 30" x 30"  (76 x 76 cm)

GAUGE: 21 sts = about 4" (10 cm) over Rows 1-4. Please be sure to check your gauge.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Yo (Yarn Over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right hand needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
 
PROJECT NOTES:
   -  This afghan is worked in one piece, increasing on the first half and then decreasing on the second half.
   -  A circular needle is used to accommodate the number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.
   -  The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 1 - Lion Brand® Ice Cream® Big Scoop Yarn - Lemon
