Quality Time scarf & blanket is easy to knit with worsted weight yarn. The design uses an easy to remember four row repeat pattern that produces lovely texture…and it’s reversible! DIRECTIONS FOR TWO SCARF SIZES + FIVE BLANKET SIZES: Approximate sizes after blocking… Scarf: 8.75” wide x 63” long Wide Scarf: 11.25” wide x 65” long Baby Blanket: 28” wide x 30.5” long Small Blanket: 30” wide x 32.5” long Medium Throw: 34” wide x 36.5” long Large Throw: 38” wide x 42.5” long XL Afghan: 42” wide x 46.5” long Finished size may vary depending on yarn weight and gauge used. Any of the sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about .5” to the length of the project. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make each size blankets longer. WORSTED WEIGHT YARN: Scarf: 410 - 420 yards Wide Scarf: 570 - 600 yards Baby Blanket: 680 - 700 yards Small Blanket: 750 - 780 yards Medium Throw: 960 - 1000 yards Large Throw: 1250 - 1300 yards XL Afghan: 1500 - 1600 yards Be sure to buy additional yarn if you plan to add length to your project. The pattern may also be used with slightly lighter or heavier weight yarns. Select the needle size that gives the best appearance for your yarn. Finished size and amount of yarn needed may vary depending on yarn choice and gauge….so buy extra yarn just in case! If you prefer Super Bulky weight yarn…please see my Game Time knitting pattern. GAUGE: Pattern stitch with US size 9 needles: approximately 16 stitches & 24 rows = 4” Exact gauge is not essential. I used US size 9 knitting needles…but choose the needle size that gives the best appearance with your yarn and your knitting tension. Significantly different gauge may require more yarn. NEEDLES: Blankets knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on circular knitting needles in order to accommodate the large number of stitches. Straight knitting needles may be used for making a scarf. SKILL LEVEL: Easy You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends. Blocking of finished knitting is highly recommended. This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms. Written pattern with row by row instructions.
