GAUGE:
1 Square = about 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 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:
FPTR (front post treble crochet) Yo twice, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times.

Skip st behind the FPTR.



Puff St (worked on WS, all in one st) (Yarn over, insert hook into indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop) into same stitch 5 times, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:
1. Twenty Squares are crocheted, then sewn together following Assembly Diagram.
2. Squares may not match exactly in size.
