Image of Rustic Blocks Afghan

This afghan couldn’t be easier to knit—worked in separate garter stitch strips, it’s great for a first afghan or for that carry-along project that can be done while waiting in the car. The spectrum of colors combine to create a rustic look.

Rustic Blocks Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

12 sts + 24 ridges (48 rows) = 4" (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). 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. 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

NOTES:

Afghan is worked in 11 vertical strips.
