Bells Lake Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 sts + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Moss st with 1 strand each of A and B held tog. 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:

Moss Stitch (over an odd number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Row 3: *P1, k1; rep from * to last st, p1.
Row 4: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Rows 1-4 for Moss st.

NOTES:

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

Bells Lake Afghan Reviewed by Stefanie Crane on 2012-07-04 *****
Very easy to knit... pattern was exceptionally easy to follow. I knitted five additional rows stripes to make it longer (ending on same color combo that I started). Weaving in is a bit of a pain with such thick yarn, but the end result is worth it.
