Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1-3 = 4 x 4 in. (10 x 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.

Wexford Granny Afghan Reviewed by Nancy Gierszewski on 2011-01-22 *****
I made this as a baby blanket. It is so beautiful! I used white, purple and a varigated white, deep pink and purple. The baby, a girl's, big brother named her strawberry, purple strawberry.So I chose the colors with this in mind.
