Notes: 

This blanket is worked in garter stitch which is just knit. Every two rows of garter stitch creates one “garter ridge”. The pattern suggests working 17 garter ridges for each color but due to slight variations in gauge you may need to work less or could work more ridges with the same amount of yarn. It takes about 3x the length of a row to complete it.

To keep the solid stripes always change color at the same edge of the blanket for each section.
