Mitered Squares Afghan

Lion Brand® Amazing®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 30 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 5 Panels; Top Panel, Lower Panel, 2 Side Panels, and Center Panel. The Panels are sewn together following the Assembly Diagram.
2. Each Panel is made from mitered diamonds. Smaller diamonds are worked first. Then stitches are picked up across 2 sides of adjoining diamonds to join them tog and beg working the next row of diamonds.
3. The instructions will tell you how many sts to pick up along a specific edge. Be sure to pick up sts as evenly spaced as possible.
4. Follow the Assembly Diagram for placement of each Diamond and arrangement of Panels.

Mitered Squares Afghan Reviewed by Maureen Sandejas on 2014-10-28 ****
I enjoyed working on this afghan, mainly because I like working with the colors that change as you go. I was disappointed though that I lacked enough yarn of Colors A and E. Since I had no direct access to more yarn, I was forced to be innovative and figure out how to stay within the color scheme by finding sections in the other colors that would fit. I am now in the process of putting all the sections together and it promises to be a very nice piece of work.
