Magnolia Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

11 dc + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).
1 Medallion = 15 x 15 in. (38 x 38 cm) square
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.

Magnolia Afghan Reviewed by Lori Griffin on 2014-07-28 *****
I wanted to crochet this for a long time but was afraid of the homespun. The trick is to use a bigger hook. After awhile, I got used to it and am very pleased with the results!! I used the color quartz.
