Evergreen Speed Stix Afghan

Lion Brand® Pound of Love® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

4 sts + 5 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in garter st (K every row) with 4 strands of A and 1 strand of B held together. 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:

Due to the nature of the fabric when working with Speed Stix, gauge may vary throughout the knitting and is not crucial to this project.

Evergreen Speed Stix Afghan Reviewed by Shanan Strode on 2012-05-25 *****
Love this pattern and I used CIRCULAR knitting needles I found on Etsy! They call them Super Stix.
