Loved this pattern on the lionbrand website...
thought I would make it for my sister's birthday.

I couldn't find any superchunky wool in the UK that was affordable/to her taste so I ended up with boring grey in chunky. King Cole Magnum Chunky 75% acrylic 25% wool.

Used US size 15 needles and did 7 panels instead of 5. Also worked all panels at once instead of individually and then sewing them together. Obviously needed more balls than their recommendation, but even when it was 1.5m square i decided it needed to be a bit funkier...

Found sirdar juniper in this greeny colour. again not what i was looking for, but time was running out and i didn't fancy my chances with choosing something to match/contrast on the internet. I crocheted the border (just under 6 balls used)

So yeah, am not 100% about this blanket.. shame really-what do you think? Not sure what my sis thought really... Least it's non itchy and cosy...

Smiley glad you found some inspiration.

I often get stuck at the swatching stage. When I want to knit, I want to knit not swatch Wink

Hugs to you! xx

I've been thinking of making the women's version of the same sweater. But I always have difficuties getting a proper gauge, when I do garter stitch.
Does anybody else have this problem? Is there a trick to getting it right? Even though I change needle sizes, I still end up with the same number of stitches per inch.
Yeah I know, it's really strange.  Roll Eyes

that has happened to me too!!! personally it took me concentrating and it made a difference ... i think garter can be "too easy" and that's possibly why i needed to concentrate?
