Felted Granny Square Afghan

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

12 dc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) before felting. 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.

I made this one. It is so cute in all baby colors. I made it for my first great grand son. Thank you for sending in and sharing with me.
