The Baby Elephant Blanket has very clear, detailed instructions with many step-by-step photos. It is circularly knit using Fair Isle technique, a machine-sewn steek and machine-sewn fabric backing.

SIZE: Knitted portion = 27” / 69 cm wide by 28” / 71 cm long, not including steeks. Entire blanket, including fabric border = 33” / 84 cm wide by 34” / 86 cm long.

GAUGE: 25 stitches and 28 rows = 4” / 10cm in stranded stockinette stitch.

NEEDLES: If you knit loosely, try a 24” / 60cm long US #4 / 3.50mm needle. If you knit tightly, try a 24” / 60cm long US #5 / 3.75mm needle.
