About 6-1/2"x8", after seaming
3 1/2 reps (5-dc groups) + 10 rows = about 4" in pattern.
BE SURE TO CHECK GAUGE. When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to make a 4" square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
