Lion Brand® Jiffy®
10 stitches + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in half double crochet.
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.
SQUARES (make 7 of each color) With A, chain 19. Row 1: Half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across - 18 stitches. Rows 2-13: Chain 2, turn, half double crochet in each half double crochet across. Square should measure about 7 in. (18 cm). Fasten off.
FINISHING Following diagram, sew Squares together. Weave in ends.

I made this afghan for my Dad's wife and she loves it! It was a very easy pattern to follow and I loved that I could use whatever combination of colors I wanted. (Just assign your own color choices to the pattern's appropriate letter/box for joining purposes.) The mattress stitch gave it a seamless look. Also, this can easily be modified to add length and width, which is great. I'm going to be starting another one real soon! :)
