New Favorite Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 1/2 hdc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).
One Block measures about 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 cm) square.

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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 20 Blocks that are sewn together following the Assembly Diagram.
2. Each Block is made from 3 Strips (2 Side Strips and 1 Center Strip); each Strip is worked in 3 colors.
3. Border is crocheted around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.
4. 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 st. Fasten off old color.
