Modern Miters Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 sc + 6 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

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.

1. Afghan is made from 6 Squares. Squares are identical except for color.
2. Each Square is worked back and forth in rows with a decrease worked at the center of each row to form the miter.
3. Squares are sewn tog following Assembly Diagram to make the Afghan.
4. Border is crocheted around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.

Modern Miters Afghan Reviewed by Sandy on 2014-08-25 *****
I increased the size by making this 3 squares by 3 squares. Not a difficult pattern to follow, I did find I needed to carefully count the first couple of rows for each block to get correct location for the corner. Love the homespun thick and quick yarn, very soft when project is finished. I gave it to a friend as a gift and she absolutely loved it!
