Circle in a Square Throw

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1-3 = 3" (7.6 cm), completed square = 8╝" (21 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Circle in a Square Throw Reviewed by MRS CHERYL P DOYLE on 2008-03-18 *****
It took a little to really "get" the pattern, but once I did a few practice squares it worked up great. My Great Niece will LOVE it done in shades of blue!
Not sure it is an EASY but it is not difficult
Would also like the number of squares it would take to do a full afgan rather than a throw.
