Homespun Pinwheel Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

17 sts = 4 3/4" (12 cm) wide and 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) long over St st (k on RS, p on WS). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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.

All SQUARES are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS); INSIDE and OUTSIDE BORDERS are worked in garter st (k every row). When sewing the solid MC squares of every size, make sure they all face the same direction.
