GAUGE:

11 dc-groups + 7 rnds = 4 in. [10 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

COLOR SEQUENCE
Work 2 rnds with A, *1 rnd with A, 1 rnd with B, 1 rnd with C, 1 rnd with D, 1 rnd with E, 1 rnd with F; rep from * for Color Sequence.

Crochet Baby Granny Square Afghan Reviewed by Tommi Johnstone on 2012-11-17 *****
I made this as a gift for a friend's first baby. The pattern is quick, easy, and versatile. It's also a GREAT way to use up excess yarns leftover from other projects (which is what I did). I would definitely make this again.
