GAUGE:
1 Block = 9" [23 cm] square BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
NOTES:
To change color, work last stitch of first color until 2 loops remain on hook, yarn over with next color, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook to complete stitch.
