Beginner Crochet Baby Afghan

14 half double crochet + 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

SQUARES (make 4 in each color)
Chain 24.
Row 1: Half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across - 22 stitches.
Rows 2-13: Chain 2, turn, half double crochet in each stitch across.
Fasten off.

Following diagram, sew Squares together. Weave in ends.

Beginner Crochet Baby Afghan Reviewed by Amber Parks on 2014-08-31 ****
I am currently working on this blanket and the pattern is gorgeous!!! I have measured my work and its measuring correctly, however, my squares are more shaped like rectangles and I don't understand how you get 13 rows to match up with 23 stitches! Please help!
