Image of Felted Afghan

A fun-to-make drop stitch makes felt fabulously flexible but doesn't compromise its wonderful warmth. Afghan is knit one panel at a time and then joined and felted.

Felted Afghan

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) before felting.

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:

Afghan is knit in St st. After knitting, stitches are dropped to create decorative strands and the afghan is felted.


AFGHAN STRIP
With A, cast on 27 sts.
Set-up Row: *K 3, bind off 3; rep from * to last 3 sts, k 3.
Next Row: *P 3, cast on 3; rep from * to last 3 sts, p 3.
Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until one ball of A is nearly used up.
Drop-Stitch Row: *K 3, drop 3 sts from left needle, cast 3 sts onto right needle; rep from * to last 3 sts, k 3.
Bind off.
Make 2 more strips using A.
Make 4 strips with B, working to same length as A strips.

FINISHING

Pull dropped stitches open all the way back to cast-on edge. Alternating A and B strips, sew strips together. Weave in ends.

FELTING

Wash in top-loading machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. Remove Afghan from washer after water has drained, but before spin cycle begins. Lay Afghan on a flat surface and pin into shape. Allow to dry.
