Patchwork Afghan

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool - Cotton-Ease® - Wool-Ease® - Microspun

GAUGE:

One square = 5½ in. [14 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

SQUARE (make 100)
With A, ch 16.
Row 1 (wrong side): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across – 15 sc. Fasten off A.
Row 2 (right side): Join B, ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. Fasten off B.
Row 3: Join C, ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), turn, dc in next 14 sc. Fasten off C.
Row 4: Join D, ch 1, turn, sc in each dc across. Fasten off D.
Row 5: Join E, ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. Fasten off E.
Row 6:
Join A, ch 3, turn, dc in next 14 sc. Fasten off A.
Row 7: Join B, ch 1, turn, sc in each dc across. Fasten off B.
Row 8: Join E, ch 1, sc in each sc across. Fasten off E.
Row 9: Join F, ch 3, turn, dc in next 14 sc. Fasten off F.
Row 10: Join C, ch 1, turn, sc in each dc across. Fasten off C.
Row 11: Join D, ch 3, turn, dc in next 14 sc. Fasten off D.
Row 12: Join F, ch 1, turn, sc in each dc across. Fasten off F.
Row 13: Join A, ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. Fasten off A.
Row 14: Join B, ch 3, turn, dc in next 14 sc. Fasten off B.

FINISHING
Strip #1 (make 5):
Lay squares on a flat surface so first square is oriented with Row 1 at bottom, Row 14 at top and stripes running horizontally. Rotate second square 90 degrees clockwise so that Row 1 is at left and Row 14 is at right and stripes are running vertically. Continue laying out 10 squares, alternating direction of stripes. With C sew squares together.

Strip #2 (make 5): Lay out another strip of 10 squares beginning with the stripes of the first square running vertically and alternating horizontal and vertical stripes as in Strip #1. With C sew squares together.

Lay out 10 strips, alternating strip #1 and strip #2. Sew strips together to make Afghan 10 squares wide by 10 squares long.

Border

From right side join C with sl st. Ch 1, sc evenly around outside edge of Afghan, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
