Flower Power Afghan

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (k on RS, p on WS). 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Seed Stitch
Row 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: P the knit sts and k the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed Stitch.

NOTES:

1) Due to the large number of sts, Afghan is worked back and forth on circular needle.
2) Afghan is knit using Intarsia method, using a separate ball of yarn for each color. Smaller sections can be worked in duplicate stitch after knitting is complete.

AFGHAN
With MC, cast on 191 sts. Working back and forth in St st on circular needle, (work chart for 284 rows, using a separate strand of yarn for each section of color and bringing new color up from under previous color to prevent holes (Intarsia method).

Top Edging
With MC, k across all sts. Work 10 rows in Seed Stitch. Bind off.

Lower Edging
From RS with MC, pick up and k 191 sts across lower edge. Work 10 rows in Seed Stitch. Bind off.

Side Edging
With MC, pick up and k 247 sts along side edge (including top and lower edgings). Work 10 rows in Seed Stitch. Bind off. Repeat for other side edge.

FINISHING
With B and G, work smaller flowers in duplicate stitch following chart, placed randomly as desired. With D, work French knots in center of flowers. With G, work straight stitches between flowers for stems. Weave in ends.

Flower Power Afghan Reviewed by Marina Branzoni on 2012-05-04 *****
I have made it. I have incorporaterd random beads on the flowers and leaves and since it has a "bad side" I have lined it with bright yellow jersey fabric. It is nice and heavvy, perfect for our canadian winters! Very satisfied with this project.
