Modular Cable Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

1 Hexagon Motif = 10 in. (25.5 cm) across.

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:

2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 31 Hexagon Motifs: 28 Solid Color Motifs and 3 Two-Color Motifs. Following the Assembly Diagram, Motifs are sewed together to make Afghan.
2. Motifs are worked back and forth in rows then seamed.

Modular Cable Afghan Reviewed by Deborah Morgan on 2014-03-18 *****
read the negative reviews of this pattern. I just completed this afghan, the key for my project was blocking each finished piece with a steam iron into the hexagon shape. the cable twists in the pattern are perfect points for the hexagon shape. the steam iron also flattens the piece and makes the pattern more self evident. this is a beautiful afghan, if you take the time to do the steaming and shaping, you will be pleased with the result!! wish these tips were included in the pattern instructions. Also wish that joining instructions/tips had been included. I am self taught, with gaps in the basics.
