Striped Two-Color Crocheted Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


14 stitches = 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

With A, chain 129.
Row 1 (Right Side) Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook, chain 1, skip 1 chain, *single crochet in next chain, chain 1, skip 1 chain; repeat from * across, end with 1 single crochet in each of last 2 chain.
Row 2 Chain 1, turn. Single crochet in first single crochet, chain 1, skip next single crochet, *single crochet in next ch-1 space, chain 1, skip next single crochet; repeat from * across, end with single crochet in last chain 1- space, single crochet in last single crochet.
Repeat Row 2 for pattern while AT THE SAME TIME working in color sequence as follows:
*Work 8 rows of A, (2 rows of B and 2 rows of A) 2 times, 8 rows of B, (2 rows of A and 2 rows of B) 2 times; repeat from * 6 times, end with 8 rows of A. Fasten off.

Join B with slip stitch at any corner. Work 3 rounds of single crochet around outside edge of afghan, skipping the thin stripes of A, working 3 single crochet in each corner, every round.
