SKILL LEVEL:  Beginner (Level 1)

SIZE: One Size
About 40 inches x 48 inches [127 cm x 122 cm]

CORRECTIONS: (applied Jan 12, 2006)


Original materials list was short. The correct quantities:
• 220-256 Fancy Fur: Ecru & Ebony: 6 Skeins (E)
• 210-153 Lion Suede: Ebony 2 Skeins (J)

The finished size will be approximately 40 inches x 48 inches.

The instructions that formerly read 'repeat color pattern until throw measures 48 inches' now read 'Repeat color pattern three more times'.
The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

Super-Quick Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun® - Fancy Fur - Fun Fur® - Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

COLOR PATTERN
Row 1
Knit with 3 strands of I held together.
Row 2 Knit with 3 strands of E held together.
Row 3 Knit with 1 strand each F, G and H (3 strands) held together.
Row 4 Knit with 3 strands D held together.
Row 5 Knit with 1 strand each F, G and H (3 strands) held together.
Row 6 Knit with 3 strands B held together.
Row 7 Knit with 3 strands E held together.
Row 8 Knit with 3 strands J held together.
Row 9 Knit with 3 strands E held together.
Row 10 Knit with 3 strands C held together.
Row 11 Knit with 3 strands J held together.
Row 12 Knit with 1 strand each F, G and H (3 strands) held together.
Row 13 Knit with 3 strands A held together.

NOTES:

Because of the nature of working with Speed Stix, achieving an exact gauge is not necessary for this project.

Divide each ball/skein into 3 balls. When changing yarns, leave 9" [23 cm] tails for fringe.

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


AFGHAN
With 3 strands A held together, cast on 50 stitches. Change to 3 strands of I and begin working color pattern in Garter stitch (knit every row). Repeat color pattern Rows 1-13 three more times. Bind off loosely with 3 strands of A.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Super-Quick Afghan Reviewed by remmusreckeb on 2012-11-27 ****
When I made this many of the yarns were discontinues, so I had so sub out a bunch. I did it in purples and gave it as an "in memory of" git to a friend's mother and it was well received. It is a messy afghan, but pretty and warm
