Simple Subtle Squares Afghan

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

10 stitches + 7 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STRIP 1
With A, chain 22.
Row 1: Half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and each chain across - 20 stitches.
Rows 2-14: Chain 2, turn, half double crochet in each half double crochet across.
Change to B (join B with slip stitch in first stitch of next row, fasten off A) and work 14 rows in half double crochet.
Change to C and work 14 rows in half double crochet.
Change to D and work 14 rows in half double crochet.
Change to E and work 14 rows in half double crochet.
Change to F and work 14 rows in half double crochet.
Fasten off.

Simple Subtle Squares Afghan Reviewed by LISA KOHL on 2008-09-02 *****
This is a great pattern. It's incredibly easy to make, and it's easy to modify by adding more squares to lengthen the afghan. I did mine in black, blue heather, and green grass, and I know my sister is going to love receiving it as a gift!
