Bright Eyes Baby Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sc and 11 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in single crochet. 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.

Bright Eyes Baby Throw Reviewed by Traycie West on 2013-07-31 ***
I've made this pattern twice and I keep ending up with an uneven blanket. Its not square, it's lop-sided. I love the yarn and the concept of making a blanket corner to corner. I wish I could figure out what I'm doing wrong that I keep getting the same odd shape.
