Pure Appeal Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

One Square = 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 in. (9 x 9 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.

Pure Appeal Baby Blanket Reviewed by Heather Cody on 2009-10-07 ****
I just finished this afghan as a gift for a baby shower. I also went with different brand of yarn(acrylic) in similar colors.
I agree that it was a bit of a pain to sew all 143 squares together. I had a hard time getting my gauge right- I went up to an N hook and the squares still weren't close to 3.5 inches. But it worked out. I also changed the border.

All in all, I like this pattern. I can't say anything about the yarn specified since I didn't use it, but once finished, this makes a very nice afghan.

My apologies for the camera phone pics..they don't do it justice.
