GAUGE:

Each Square = approx 6.4 in. x 6.4 in. Each Section = approx 12 in. x 12 in. 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.

THROW: Make 48 basic squares. Following assembly diagram for the throw of your choice, sew squares together.

There are four possible orientations of the squares.   These are designated as square 1, 2, 3 or 4

  1. In square 1, the square is oriented so that the left and top edges are the 'A' color and the right and bottom edges are the 'B' color.

  2. In square 2, the square is oriented so that the top and right edges are the 'A' color and the left and bottom edges are the 'B' color.

  3. In square 3, the square is oriented so that the right and bottom edges are the 'A' color and the left and top edges are the 'B' color.

  4. In square 4, the square is oriented so that the bottom and left edges are the 'A' color and the top and right edges are the 'B' color.

The eight different appearances are made by combining the squares in different orders as shown below.

I love this pattern. It takes time and you need to pay attention to your squares, but it is beautiful when complete. I want to do this one again.
