GAUGE:

11 sc = 4 in. (10 cm).

BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

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.

Basically Striped Afghan Reviewed by heather Hutchison on 2010-02-18 ****
It took me awhile to figure out the order of my colour choice( take the time to really make sure of the order BEFORE you start)..but once I had that done the Afgan turned out wonderful.I made it larger ,turned it on its' side and added a fringe.
