Autumn Afternoon Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sc = 4 inches (10 cm); each square measures 8 inches x 8 inches. 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

AFGHAN (made up of 35 squares)

SQUARE
Using MC, ch 21.
Row 1 Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across (20 sc).
Row 2

FINISHING

Autumn Afternoon Afghan Reviewed by Roni Crincoli on 2013-11-16 ***
I made this and it was fun, until I had to attach the squares together. Not easy to "hide" the color when it's against the white...aarrrrrrrggggggghhhhh
