Using US6 needles, I cast on 225 sts. I knit up 6 skeins of Sinfonia sport weight 100% mercerized cotton. It measures approx. 45"x46". This is to go to Comforts from the Heart along with some pink satin blanket binding to be sewn along the edge. So very happy to have this one off of the needles. This is blanket #3 for 2013.
