Plaid Baby Blanket

Lion Brand® Homespun® Baby

GAUGE:

12 sts + 7 rows = 5 inches (12.7 cm) in plaid pattern. 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:

Afghan is worked in one piece with horizontal stripes; vertical stripes are worked later over ch1-spaces.

Rep Row 2 in following color sequence: (4 rows A, 2 rows MC, 4 rows B, 2 rows MC) 4 times, then work 4 rows A, 2 rows MC. DO NOT FASTEN OFF MC.

On my second one - the pattern is easy and fast - everyone raved about how it turned out- I rate this a five star
