Knit Crossword Afghan

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9.5 sts + 13.5 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS). 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 made of 30 knit squares with crocheted edging, which are sewn together.


BASIC SQUARE – Make 3 in each of colors B through K


Cast on 21 sts.
Row 1 (WS): Slip first st as if to purl, p 20.
Row 2 (RS): Slip first st as if to knit, k 20.
Repeat Rows 1-2 for 14 more times (30 rows total), ending with a RS row. Bind off as if to purl.



FINISHING


With A and crochet hook, work 1 round sc around each square as follows: join A at lower right corner, chain 1, sc in each edge st (15 sc) to corner, work 2 more sc in corner, 15 sc evenly spaced along bind off edge to corner, 2 more sc in corner, sc in each edge st (15 sc) to corner, 2 more sc in corner, 15 sc evenly spaced along cast on edge to corner, 1 more sc in corner; join with slip st to beginning sc. Fasten off. Lay out squares as shown on diagram below.
With A and large-eyed, blunt needle, sew squares together. With A, embroider the squares in duplicate st to form any 2 or more crosswords. With A and crochet hook, work 8 rows sc along bottom and top edges. Work 1 row sc along each side edge. Weave in ends.


The stitch for the entire alphabet can be found in the downloadable pattern.
