Knit Lion Country Afghan pattern

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 24 rows = 4inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop of the stitch.

NOTES:

For ease in working, copy the 4 charts and join by taping together.

With MC cast on 274 stitches.
Work in St st for 12 rows.
Cast on 10 sts at beg of next 2 rows -- 294 sts.
Continue in St st until 24 rows have been completed.

Beg with RS row, work 26 sts St st, work Row 1 of charts 1 and 2 (258 sts), end 10 sts St st. After 95 rows are complete, begin charts 3 and 4.
