Rainbow Stripe Afghan

Lion Brand« Chunky USA

GAUGE:

8 sc + 10 rows = 4" (10 cm).

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

BLANKET

With A, ch 85. Sc into the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 1: Ch 1, turn; sc in each sc across – 84 sts.

Continue in sc in the following color sequence:

4 rows B; 6 rows C; 8 rows D; 10 rows E; 2 rows A; 2 rows B; 2 rows C; 2 rows D; 2 rows E; 10 rows A; 8 rows B; 6 rows C; 4 rows D; 2 rows E; 2 rows A.

Work through color sequence a second time. Fasten off.

BORDER

With RS facing, join A with slip st in corner. Work 83 sc evenly spaced across top and bottom edges, 116 sc evenly spaced along each side edge, and 3 sc in each corner; join with slip st to beg sc. Work 2 rnds more, working 3 sc in each corner, each rnd. Fasten off.

Crochet Rainbow Stripe Afghan Reviewed by Lynda Schwechtje on 2010-08-10 *****
Made it for my grandson. It was easy and fast, and he loves it. It has held up for years, through many washings.
