Lion Brand® Holiday Homespun®

GAUGE:

One Square = 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 in. (11 x 11 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.

Home for the Holidays Afghan Reviewed by Andrea Peck on 2012-07-11 *****
Very easy pattern to work. Were it not for all the ends to weave in, it would also be a fairly quick throw to make. Making 110 granny squares did get sort of tedious, but I absolutely love how it turned out. I did not use Lion Brand homespun, but the holiday yarn I did use fit the pattern perfectly. My MIL will be thrilled when she opens up her Christmas gift and sees this inside.
