GAUGE:
1 Granny Square = 6 x 6 in. (15 x 15 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Popcorn Work 5 dc in indicated st, remove hook from loop, insert hook into first dc of 5-dc group, insert hook back into original loop and draw loop through first dc.

NOTES:
1) To change color at end of a rnd, work joining sl st as follows: insert hook in joining st, yarn over with new color, draw through loops on hook to complete sl st.

Cut old yarn leaving a long tail, and gently pull both yarn ends to tighten.

Weave in tail of old yarn.
2) Follow Color Sequence to work squares, changing colors every rnd.
