This 4 piece “double eyelet” set (V-neck cardigan, hat, booties &blanket) is worked in DK weight yarn at 5.5 stitches per inch. For a softer feel, the blanket is worked with the same yarn using larger needles, so the gauge is 4.5 sts = 1″. You can see from the photograph that you can use solid or variegated yarn. A set could also include mixing solid & variegated.
