Lion Brand® Jiffy® - TiffanyTM


10 sts x 16 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in 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.

Warm Clouds Preemie / Newborn Afghan Reviewed by Jacquelin Villamor on 2013-09-14 *****
I made this blanket for my daughter when she was pregnant with her 3rd child. I had started a different blanket in girl colors, but since she was having another boy I chose this one. It turned out so beautiful and soft, she cried when she took it out of the box. The only problem that arose with this was her son started pulling small strands off the blanket and getting them in his mouth. Maybe why I see that the Tiffany yarn has been discontinued?. But now that he is older, 5 now, he still likes to cuddle with HIS blanket..
