Lion Brand® LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo

GAUGE:

1 Square = 9 3/4 in. (25 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.

Cheerful Squares Baby Throw Reviewed by Holly Osterland on 2014-01-26 ****
I really enjoyed making this blanket. Used the bamboo/cotton and chose the Persimmon rather than blue for a gender-neutral blanket. I would use one size smaller hook next time as for me the gauge turned out a little big and the weave was a little loose. Put a small border around at the end to even it up. Be sure to count your stitches to keep the squares symmetrical. I had to re-do a couple of them. And weaving in the ends as you complete each square will make for less tedium when the blanket is done!
