Crochet Sampler Afghan

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

1 Square = about 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 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.

Crochet Sampler Afghan Reviewed by Yvonne on 2012-05-23 *****
I loved making this afghan! The squares crocheted up quickly and easily. I chose colors that went with my decor. Mine came out a great size for a child's blanket or lap throw. I've pictured it thrown over my love seat so you can see the size. Got lots of compliments, and am likely to make it again for gifts.
