Lion Brand® Homespun® Thick & Quick®
6 hdc + 4 1/2 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st.

I made this afghan in pearls and mixed berries for my mother-in-law. It came out beautiful. I did make it larger than pattern. I LOVE the homespun thick and quick yarn. It is so soft and cozy and perfect for afghans.
