Lion Brand® Jiffy® - TiffanyTM
Pattern #: BK4K-0604002
This is a thick, warm and incredibly soft afghan that gets its beauty from an unusual yarn combination that is sure to be a hit with Mom! Made from acrylic and nylon, contains no harsh animal fibers to irritate tender skin. Fully washable (air dry), it gets softer with time.

8 sc x 8 rows = 4 in. [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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Afghan is worked with one strand of (A) and two strands of (B) throughout

With One strand of (A) and 2 of B, ch 32 (48, 60) sts

Warm Clouds Preemie / Newborn Afghan Reviewed by Evers Charlotte on 2012-09-18 *****
I agree that this blanket costs $80 and that it is a really nice blanket. I made one 2 years ago for my granddaughter; she is 4 years old now and still loves it. It seems more compact; maybe it's been washed too much. It must be the smaller size because she recently asked me to make her a new blanket a little larger.
