GAUGE

INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES

1. Granny squares and half granny squares are worked with RS facing throughout. Do not turn work at the ends of rounds or rows.

2. Five granny squares and one half granny square are joined together to make each strip. A "join-as-you-go" technique is used to join the current square to the previous square. When working Round/Row 4, the current square is joined to the previous square by working a slip stitch in the corresponding corner ch-1 space of the previous square.

3. A ripple stitch pattern is worked across one edge of each granny square strip, then the strips are sewn together, and the ripple stitch pattern worked across the remaining unworked edge.
