Recipe: Coffee Cup Square Motif by Hooker Leo
Needle: US 6 – 4.0 mm
Yarn: Red Heart Soft; Yarn Color: 1882 Toast; Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic; Yarn Weight: 4-Worsted
Dimensions: 12 x 13 inches, should be 12 x 12 inches

Having finished Summertime Blues, I was all geared up to deconstruct my first attempt and recreate the Coffee Cup Square Motif for the Coffee Connection Afghan within the requested dimensions: 12 x 12 inches. The odd thing is that I have already made a square – minus coffee cup, with the same yarn, but different color – using an 8 needle and had no problem with gauge.

I started with an 8 and it kept coming out about 13.5 inches wide. After a few calls to some knitter friends, I decided to decrease the needle size. With a 7 needle, I still was too wide at about 13 inches. Not pleased, I decided to go down to a 6 needle. Finally, I got the right width measurement, but did not discover until I was done that the height is 13 inches. Aiyaa! Well, at least one dimension is correct. I’ll let the overage be absorbed by the blanket.

One thought on “Coffee Cup Square Motif”

  1. When I try to download the pattern, the graph shows over the instructions on page 2. Was this intentional? If not, could you please send me the pattern? My daughter loves coffee and I thought I would make her a set of these to go along with the scrubbers already done for her kitchen 🙂
