Materials:

  • 2 balls Vanna's Choice Yarn in Toffee (A)
  • 1 ball Vanna's Choice Yarn in Magenta (B)
  • 1 ball Vanna's Choice Yarn in Dusty Blue (C)
  • 1 ball Vanna's Choice Yarn in Burgundy (D)

Gauge:  12 dc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).  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 fewer 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.
