Easy Does It Blanket

Lion Brand« Jiffy®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in sc. 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Popcorn: Work 3 sc in indicated st or sp, drop last loop from hook, insert hook in first sc of 3-sc group, pick up dropped loop and draw through st on hook.

NOTES:

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.
