Image of Knitted Heaven-sent Angel Afghan/Cap

Create a heavenly angel-on-a-cloud to watch over your precious ones! This exclusive Lion Brand Wool-Ease afghan is worked in seed, stockinette, garter and scallop stitches. The angel design is knitted into the afghan; the scalloped edge is worked separately and sewn on. The adorable one-size tie-top cap echoes the afghan's pretty pastel scallops.

Knitted Heaven-sent Angel Afghan/Cap

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts and 30 rows = 4” in seed st. TO INSURE PROPER SIZE, BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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.
