The Name

Kid by The Pretenders

I was inspired by the yarn name and for whom the afghan would be most appropriate.

Hooker Notes

On da Hook: April 11-18, 2012
Hook Size: US J Hook
Dimensions: approximately 3 feet square

Wow! What I hoped would be a two-day project turned out to be a one-week project. I continually kept screwing up the stitch pattern and would have to frog 1-3 rows each time. The border presented a couple of problems as well: the first time I did not like what I had done, the second time I ran out of yarn.

The Yarn

Knitting Fever Euro Baby Kids Rock
Fiber Content: 93% Acrylic, 7% Polyester; Yarn Color: 05 Creme; Yarn Weight: 6, Bulky

I bought this yarn at a “local yarn store” and despite the fact that it is 93% Acrylic/7% Polyester, the price per skein was hefty.

The Recipe

Kid by Hooker Leo

I consider Kid one of “my recipes,” as I think it could be made of “any yarn weight” you might have in your “pantry.” Sadly, I can’t provide dimensions; you will get a good idea after chaining your foundation chain.
