|Use a size 9 circular needle 29" long and 4-ply
machine washable and dryable acrylic knitted worsted yarn. This pattern
requires 22 to 24 ounces of yarn for each robe. It starts at one corner,
grows out to two corners and decreases to one corner, made all in one
Cast on two stitches. Row 1: Knit off 1st stitch.
Inrease 2nd stitch. Row 2: Knit 1, Inc.1, K1. Row 3: K1, Inc. 1, K1, K1.
Row 4: K1, Inc. 1, K1, K1, K1.
Subsequent rows: Continue as above, always knitting
off the 1st stitch and increasing on the second stitch, then continuing
with the plain (garter) stitch, to the end of each row.
When the finished edge of the blanket measures 40
inches (this will be half the blanket), start to decrease.
To decrease: K1, K2 together, continue to K1 to end of
row. Continue above with each row until you are down to the end. You
will have a blanket 40 inches square, with a good finished edge.
