yarns vary. Sample was knit with TLC Baby Amore on size 13 needles which yielded
a more loose-knit, draping fabric. If you prefer a tighter knit, try using
smaller needles (size 10 or 11) but be advised that it will produce an overall
smaller size blanket and may use more yarn.

Use a row
counter to help keep track of pattern rows.
‘ridged’ variation is made according to pattern instructions
below. (See photo 01, above.)
‘unridged’ variation was made by
purling every other row and omitting the knit rows (Rows 4 & 5) that form the
ridges. For this version, repeat only Rows 3 and 2, changing color every 2
rows. (See photo 02, above.)
Important! If working the
3-color version: When changing colors every 2 rows, do not cut yarn but carry it
very loosely up the side of the work. Drop old color to front and pick
up new color from below and behind, leaving enough “play” in the new strand to
reach up to the row you will be working next so as not to pucker or tighten up
side borders (worked over 5 sts):
Row 1: K1,
p1, k1, p1, k1.
