Colorwheel Afghan

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice® Baby - Vanna's Palettes

GAUGE:

One Square = about 5 x 5 in. (12.5 x 12.5 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 64 Squares sewn tog following an Assembly Diagram.
2. Each Square is worked in joined rnds with RS always facing. A different color is used to make each Square.
3. A border is worked around the entire outer edge of the assembled Afghan.



VANNA'S PALETTES Colors
Notes:

1. Each package of VANNA'S PALETTES contains 8 miniature balls of yarn. For this Afghan, you will be making one Square from each of the 64 miniature balls.
2. In order to follow the Assembly Diagram, so that your Afghan looks exactly like the Afghan shown in the photo, you'll need to identify each color yarn in each VANNA'S PALETTES package.
3. To identify the yarn color names, check the photograph of the yarn packages at LionBrand.com.
4. We suggest that you work with one yarn package at a time and that as you finish each Square, you label it with the name of the yarn color.
5. Some of the yarn colors appear in more than one of the packages. Since you are making one Square from each of the miniature balls, you will have more than one Square in these colors.

For your convenience, we are providing the following list of the colors included in each package:

In #200 Peaceful: Goldfish, Pink Poodle, Pink, Duckie, Sweet Pea, Mint, Little Boy Blue, Bluebell

In #201 Happy: Scarlet, Berrylicious, Cheery Cherry, Goldfish, Radiant Yellow, Radiant Lime, Aqua, Sapphire
