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

This sweet, stripey blanket is the bee’s knees! It’s made from Lion Brand® Ice Cream® Big Scoop yarn, so it’s terrifically soft, not bulky or stiff. And, the textured knit stitch in this pattern gives it a delightful look and feel – try it out for yourself!
Step 1
MEASUREMENTS: About 28" x 30" (71 x 76 cm)

GAUGE: 18 sts  = about 4" (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every st on every row). 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.
