Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size J-10 (6 mm)
Quantity needed: 1
Estimated Price: $ 2.45


Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
Quantity needed: 1
Estimated Price: $ 3.59

GAUGE:
12 sc + 14 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm); One Block = about 11 x 11 in. (28 x 28 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.

NOTES:
1.

20 Blocks are made individually, then sewed together following the Assembly Diagram.

2.

Each Block starts with a Beginning Square.

Strips are worked across 2 edges of the Beginning Square to form a larger square, then additional strips are worked to complete the Block.

Refer to the Block Diagram for details.

3.

The first 6 rows of the Beginning Square are worked with 2 colors.

4.

To change color, work last st of old color to the last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st.

5.

To change color in the foundation ch, follow specific instructions in the pattern.
