Squares Lap Robe
by
Ann V. Gallentine

This 34-inch by 42.5-inch lap robe is made up of 20 squares. It is perfect for throwing over your legs on those cold winter nights of TV watching. The name comes from its square design. The combination of simple seed, stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches result in a design of 5 squares in each square. Its small size and simple pattern makes a nice project to take on vacation or do while riding in the car.

Materials: Approximately 1 ounce worsted weight wool for each square; Number 7 needles.

Gauge: 5 sts, 7 rows = 1 inch in st st.

Size: Each square measures 8.5 inches. The lap robe requires 20 squares.
