Catch the Wave Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Wave Stitch pattern. 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.

Catch the Wave Afghan Reviewed by Janice Oien on 2014-05-05 *****
My favorite by far. I used double strand throughout with one of Homespun, and one of worsted weight or thinner; All yarns I had to use up. I made it for our queen bed and we really love it. Nice and warm and beautiful.
