Spicy Delights Afghan

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


2½ clusters of Row 1 = 5 in. [12.5 cm] with 1 strand A, B, or C. 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


Cluster: 5 dc in same space.

With A, loosely ch 94.
Row 1: Work 5-dc cluster in 6th ch from hook, (skip 4 ch, cluster in next ch) 17 times, skip 2 ch, dc in last ch. Fasten off A. Turn.
Row 2: Join B and draw up a lp in sp between last dc and next cluster of previous row, ch 3 (counts as first dc of 3 dcs), work 2 dc in same sp, work cluster between each cluster of previous row; end with 3 dc in sp after last cluster. Fasten off B. Turn.
Row 3: Join C and draw up a lp in last dc, ch 3 (counts as dc), work cluster between first 3 dcs and next cluster of previous row, work cluster between each cluster across; end with cluster between last cluster and last 3 dcs, dc in last dc. Fasten off C. Turn.
Rows 4-78: Rep Rows 2 and 3, working in stripe pattern of 1 row each A, B, and C.
Row 79: With A, sc in first dc, ch 2, sc in center dc of next cluster (ch 4, sc in center dc of next cluster) 17 times; ch 2, sc in last dc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Cut 12 in. [30.5 cm] lengths of each color. For each Fringe, hold 8 strands of yarn together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of Afghan, forming a loop. Pull ends of Fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Attach Fringe in each ch-sp along both ends of Afghan, working in A, B, C sequence, beginning and ending with A. Trim Fringe ends evenly.

Spicy Delights Afghan Reviewed by Joan on 2009-05-08 *****
I have made three of these afgans and they all have gotten rave reviews. Very easy to make. Of course, I changed the yarn to Vanna's choice and use three strands held together. I made one with blues and greens and it looked like sea shells.
