Autumn Leaves Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

One repeat of Lace Pattern (17 sts) = about 7 in. (18 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sk2p Sl 1 as if to knit, k2tog, pass slipped stitch over – 2 sts decreased.

PATTERN STITCH
Lace Pattern (multiple of 17 sts, decreasing to 15 sts on Rows 2–7)

Row 1 (WS): Purl.
Row 2 (RS): *K1, yo, k1, k2tog tbl, p1, k2tog, k1, p1, k2, p1, k2tog, k1, p1, k1; rep from * across.
Row 3: *P4, (k1, p2) twice, k1, p4; rep from * across.
Row 4: *(K1, yo) twice, k2tog tbl, p1, k2tog, p1, k2tog tbl, p1, k2tog, (yo, k1) twice; rep from * across.

Row 6: *K1, yo, k3, yo, sk2p, p1, k3tog, yo, k3, yo, k1; rep from * across.
Row 7: *P7, k1, p7; rep from * across.
Row 8: *K1, yo, k5, yo, sk2p, yo, k5, yo, k1; rep from * across.
Rep Rows 1-8 for Lace Pattern.

Seed St (over even number of sts) 

Row 1: *K1, p1, rep from * to end. 

Row 2: Knit the p sts and purl the k sts. 

Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is worked in one piece with a Seed st border on each of the 4 sides of the Afghan. After working in Seed st for 2 in. (5 cm) for the beg border, you will be working the first and last 4 sts of the Afghan in Seed st (for the side borders) and the center 102 sts in the Lace Pattern.
2. The number of sts in each rep of the Lace Pattern will change within the 8-row Lace Pattern. As you work Row 2 of the Lace Pattern, each rep of the Lace Pattern will decrease from 17 sts to 15 sts. On Row 8 of the Lace Pattern, each rep of the Lace Pattern will increase from 15 sts to 17 sts.
3. The Lace Pattern used in this Afghan requires that you keep track of your sts and of which row you are working on. In Row 1, we will tell you where to place st markers so that there are 17 sts between each set of markers. As you work each RS row, count your sts every time you come to a marker. You should have 17 sts between markers on Row 1; 15 sts between markers on Rows 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7; 17 sts between markers on Row 8. If you do not have the correct number of sts, examine each st in your last rep and make any needed fixes (unravel st by st to make corrections) before continuing with the row.
4. Use a row counter to keep track of which rows of the 8-row Lace Pattern you have worked.
5. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

AFGHAN
Cast on 110 sts. Work in Seed st until piece measures 2 in. (5 cm) from beg.
Begin Lace Pattern
Work in Seed st over first 4 sts (for side border), place a marker (pm), work Row 1 of Lace Pattern over next 102 sts as follows: *pm, p17, rep from * to last 4 sts, pm, work last 4 sts in Seed st (for side border). At the end of Row 1, each rep of the Lace Pattern will be defined by st markers.
Note: As you continue work, count your sts across every RS row to be sure you are maintaining the correct number of sts following the Lace Pattern.
Continue as established, keeping first and last 4 sts in Seed st (for side borders), and working Lace Pattern Rows 1-8 over center 102 sts, until piece measures about 52 in. (132 cm) from beg; end with Row 8 of the Lace Pattern.
Work in Seed st until piece measures about 54 in. (137 cm) from beg. Bind off.

Autumn Leaves Afghan Reviewed by Barbara D. Erb on 2013-01-11 *****
This is a wonderful pattern! I made it in Navy blue, and gave to my mother who is in an assisted living facility. I got a card of thanks, along with notes from caregivers on how beautiful it is. It started a bit beyond my capabilities, but I learned and got "experienced" fast! I recommend this pattern!
