Mitered Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

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

dc3tog (dc 3 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook - 2 sts decreased.
FPDC (front post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC. Notes: In this design, post sts are worked around sts 2 rnds below. For example, if you are on Rnd 3 and are instructed to work "around st 2 rnds below", you will work around a st in Rnd 1 (3 - 2 = Rnd 1). Be sure to skip the st 'behind' the FPDC.
sc3tog (sc 3 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook - 2 sts decreased.
sc5tog (sc 5 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) 5 times, yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on hook - 4 sts decreased.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 10 Large Squares and 40 Small Squares.
2. The Squares are sewed together following the Assembly Diagram. An edging is then worked around the entire outside edge of the Afghan.
3. Each Square is worked back and forth in alternating sc and dc rows, with a decrease worked at the center of each row to form the miter.
4. A stitch marker is used to indicate the center of each row.

Mitered Afghan Reviewed by Bethany Rice on 2014-03-23 ****
This was a fun afghan to make. The skill level is accurate. One thing I'd definitely recommend is to take the time to block your squares. The Mitered pattern doesn't come out totally square. The border is a bit goofy and took some time to get right.
