The Afghan Striped

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 dc + 11 rows = 4 in. [10 cm].

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:

To change color, work last stitch to the point where there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over with new color to complete stitch.

The Afghan Striped Reviewed by ALEXIS MARSTERS on 2010-12-18 *****
I purchased this kit in 2006, made it, and absolutely love it! The yarn is wonderful to work with, and the afghan is very warm especially on a cold upstate NY night when it's below zero!! It's very easy to make as well. I enjoyed making it! I reordered the yarn to make one for a friend who admires mine.
