Mix And Match Afghan

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

12 sc + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 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.

Mix And Match Afghan Reviewed by nicole smith on 2011-02-08 *****
This was my first crochet blanket, and it turned out great! Very easy to follow pattern. I even used different weights and materials of yarns to use up scraps, and it still ended up very nice and even. I skipped the edge decorative stitches.
