For the Yarn I used Caron Simply Soft in Dk. Country Blue, Autumn Red, and White. For the red/white part cast on 148 in red. Work 105 rows in stockinette. Then change to white and do another 105 rows. Bind off. For the star. Cast on 74 in blue do 71 rows in stockinette knit the chart*** (I did intarsia) then do 72 more rows of blue in stockinette. (Count the rows in the chart to be sure this adds up to 210)
***For the chart add 14 blue then read the chart then add 13 on the other end to get you 74 stitches each row.
I have attached the chart it is a PDF file.
After you are done with both Wash to block (or whatever blocking process you prefer) then lay side by side and use the mattress stitch to sew both pieces together.
My guage with this yarn was 4 stitches per inch 6 rows per inch. On size 9 circular needles.
Here are some tips: You may want to knit a border say 5 rows of garter or seed at the bottom and 5 stitches on each side just to keeep it from curling. (I didn't do that and had to pay a seamstress to create a blanket edge out of ribbon and a sewing machine for me. Expensive mistake, but I wouldn't have been able to give it to them all curled up LOL) Also, if you choose to use different yarn make sure it is either washable, or that the red doesn't bleed before you attach it to the white or you'll end up with a pink and red section!!
