Mayfield Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Lace 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sk2p- slip 1 st as if to knit, knit 2 sts together, pass slipped stitch over – 2 sts decreased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit)- slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time to right needle, insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together.

PATTERN STITCHES
Seed St (over odd number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1, rep from *, end k1.
Row 2: Knit the p sts and purl the k sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

NOTES:

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Mayfield Afghan Reviewed by beck cecilia on 2012-11-14 *****
I just completed this beautiful afghan but I used worsted weight yarn and size 8 straight needles which gave me a beautiful lapghan. Perfect for someone who is confined to a wheelchair for example, or for someone who just likes to sit and knit. The pattern was easy and I did not use markers. Thanks for this very useful pattern.
