Just finished this lap robe. If it seems like it was finished incredibly quick after a pair of socks, its because most of this was knitted last year. Got too warm to continue having this draped over my body while I knitted, so was put aside ‘til now. Still can’t get over how much yarn it takes to make even simple little things!
Lion Brand home spun thick and quick super bulky Greystone stripes. 5 row, 5 stitch garter stitch border, seed stitch for the rest. 101 stitches on #15 needles. Measures just over 38” x 68”. weighs 1.75 lbs for 3.5skeins (8 oz / 160 yards each) so about 640 yards total. at 68” still not long enough to make a good shawl, but will make a great lap robe, nap blanket for the couch, etc.. Laid it out on the floor to measure it and see I kept a pretty consistent gauge, it’s a decent rectangle, not a parallelogram or something odd shape
