Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® Baby

GAUGE:

11 dc + 6 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.

Simple Stripes Baby Afghan Reviewed by Shannon on 2013-03-16 *****
This was so much fun to crochet. I did notice the pucker in the blanket but once I washed it, the pucker went away. It was such a hit at the baby shower i was at that I've been asked to make one for someone.
