So my DD (2.5 yr old) picked out a yarn recently (Baby Bee – Angel Fleece) that she wanted and we agreed that I would knit her a blanket all her own. Doesn’t need to be a huge afghan or anything so I only bought one skein (I can, if required go get another, I suppose).
I am just doing a garter stitch blanket on this one (want it to be quick). Apparently this yarn is 127 yards and size 10 needles (US) for a 6x6" gauge. Unfortunately, the label was destroyed (thanks to kiddos) so don’t have more than that.
Here is my question…finally… what number of stitches would you recommend I CO to knit up a blankie for her that would use this one skein (ideally)? I don’t want to CO on too few and end up with something tiny but don’t want to run out and be no-where done. IF I need to do two skeins to make this blanket, then how big do I shoot for for 1/2 the blanket?
This is a stupid question, I’m sure. I guess I should just go for it and see what happens but… any input would be appreciated, not only by me but also my DD when she has a blanket that is HERS.
