Eccentric Blocks Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 hdc + 7 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).
1 Solid Square = about 13 x 13 in. (33 x 33 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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 18 Squares: 2 Triangle Squares, 2 Diagonal Squares, 6 Solid Squares, and 8 Small Squares. Squares are sewn together following Assembly Diagram.
2. Triangle Squares and Diagonal Squares are worked in intarsia crochet following Charts.
3. When working from charts, read charts from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows. Each box represents one hdc.
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 the st. Drop strand of color not in use to WS of work.
