Rainbow Striped Baby Throw / Blanket

Lion Brand® Jamie® Baby

GAUGE:

6 V-sts and 8 rows to 4 inches in pattern using Size K crochet hook. 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.

Rainbow Striped Baby Throw / Blanket Reviewed by THERESA M GRAHAM on 2009-08-20 *****
I made this pattern several times. The pattern is easy to follow, the color changes keep it interesting, and the end results created a sensation at the baby showers. Lots of compliments! TG
