Needles: #7
Gauge: 4″=18 st.

    I can’t resist asking – what are you going to do with this swatch?

  2. Lisa Says:

    Thanks for asking, Karrie! I have a several ideas: 1) use this as a center-piece of a lap blanket; 2) knit 3 more of the same pattern, in seasonal color choices, and use all four as the center of a lap blanket; 3) knit up several of BW’s “Gingerbread Castle” (same book, pg 242) and assemble them with several of this swatch as a lap blanket. Finish off the lap blanket with a fun border treatment, maybe from one of Nicky Epstein’s books.
