GAUGE:
12 sc + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 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:
sc3tog (sc 3 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) 3 times, yarn and draw through all 4 loops on hook – 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:
1.

Center Square of Blanket is worked in joined rnds beg at center.

2.

Corner Triangles are worked back and forth in rows across each side edge of Center Square, changing color every other row.

3.

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

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

Fasten off B colors.

To reduce the number of ends to weave in, do not fasten off A until Corner Triangle is complete.

Carry A along side of piece until next needed.
