Vintage On The Bias Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

7 sc + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).
1 Square = about 20 x 20 in. (51 x 51 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:

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 4 identical Blocks. Blocks are sewn tog and Border worked around the entire outer edge.
