Here is what this week looks like completed… Yes, traditional ~ but there will be some whimsical rows.. So watch for them!


A bit about gauge… Last week I gave all the info on Size, Materials, Gauge and much more in the Material List post… A lot of people don’t do gauge swatches.. That is totally fine.. Afghans dont need to fit. But if you want to try to stick close to the pattern size and yardage needed, you may want to do one.. It is a 3″ x 3″ swatch, but you will want to make the swatch at least 4″ x 4″ then measure in the middle for an accurate gauge of the 3″ x 3″. The beginning/end rows and stitches don’t make accurate counts.. So that is why you want to measure in the middle… G
