Lion Brand« Pound of Love®

GAUGE:

11 dc + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

Purely Square Baby Throw Reviewed by Sarah Rigotti on 2013-06-08 *****
I have made two of these using a G Hook and they both came out beautifully. I made an edging- one row of single crochet, one row of double cr, chain one, skip one, double crochet and a third row of shell stitch, which scalloped the edging very nicely. The second row of double and skip allows space for a cute ribbon. I intend to keep making this pattern because it is easy, and the results are appealing to all. It is a quaint blanket. Thank you Lion Brand. Sarah from Rev˛ TN
