GAUGE:

1 Granny Square (3 rnds) = 8 x 8 in. (20.5 x 20.5 cm). Gauge may vary when working with Speed Hook, exact gauge is not essential to this project. 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.

Cottage Throw Reviewed by Elyse Jozwiak on 2010-08-20 *****
I made this as a gift and it turned out beautifully! It did take a long time to make, though.
