Image of Artful Elegance Afghan

We've recolored this catalog classic (and customer favorite) for a richer look. The unusual shape is achieved by knitting in the round and increasing out from the center.

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18stsand24rows=4"(10cm)overStst(konRS,ponWS).

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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1 st) Knit rows Insert left needle from front to back under horizontal strand between st just worked and next st on left needle. Knit this strand through back loop to twist it.

M1 (make 1 st) Purl rows Insert left needle from back to front under horizontal strand between st just worked and next st on left needle. Purl this strand through front loop to twist it.

NOTES:

Many different lengths of circular needles are called for since throw begins with very few sts and ends with very many.


THROW

Beg at center, with A and a dpn, cast on 8 sts. Divide evenly on 4 dpns, with 2 sts on each needle. Join, taking care not to twist sts and mark beg of rnd.

Rnd 1 Knit.

Rnd 2 * K 2, M1; rep from * to end of rnd – 12 sts.

Rnd 3 * K 3, M1; rep from * to end of rnd – 16 sts.

Rnds 4 - 6 Cont in this manner, knitting one st more every rnd before each M1 (4 sts are increased every row) – after Rnd 6 there will be 28 sts.

Color Rnd 1 Change to B and work rnd as previously – 32 sts.

Color Rnd 2 * P8, M1; rep from * to end of rnd.

Color Rnds 3 - 6 Cont as in this manner, purling one st more every rnd before each M1.

Color Rnd 7 * K 13, M1; rep from * to end of rnd.

Color Rnds 8 - 12 Cont as in this manner, knitting 1 st more every rnd before each M1. Work 12 rnds in each color as for Color Rnds 1 - 12 as foll: knit Color Rnds 1 and 7 - 12, purl Color Rnds 2 - 6, and always work 1 stitch more every rnd before each M1. Work in the foll color sequence: C, A, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O. Change needle lengths as needed to accommodate number of sts. After working color Rnds 1 - 12 in O, cont with O in garter st (p 1 rnd, k 1 rnd) for 5 rnds. Bind off all sts loosely in knit. Weave in ends.

Artful Elegance Afghan Reviewed by KAREN COOPER on 2010-09-28 *****
This was actually quite easy. The most difficult part was finding a store that had all the sizes of circular knitting needles. I eventually ordered some through Amazon. The first half of the afghan works up really fast. But as it increases in size, it definitely takes longer to work around. It is quite stunning to see the finished product.
