Modern Miters Afghan

Lion Brand® Amazing®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (k every row).
Each Motif = about 3 x 6 in. (7.5 x 15 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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made in a modular fashion, with rows of Rectangles. Sts are picked up across edges of previous Rectangles to begin the next Rectangle. Follow the Assembly Diagram for the working order of Rectangles.
2. Rectangles are made with two decreases worked on every other row, Half Rectangles are worked with a single decrease on every other row.
3. Change colors randomly as desired. To change color, cut the old color leaving an 8 in. (20.5 cm) yarn tail then begin working with the new color leaving a beginning yarn tail. You may knot the old and new yarn tails together, if desired. When you have finished knitting, unknot the tails and weave them in.
