Slip Stitch Afghan

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® - Amazing®

GAUGE:

15 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over 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:

Yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

NOTES:

1. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.
2. Afghan is worked in one piece, with 9 sections worked in alternating st and color patterns.
3. Sections 3-9 are repeats of Section 1 or Section 2, changing colors to create a striped effect.
4. With yarn in front (wyif) refers to the side of the work facing you as you work the row; with yarn in back (wyib) refers to the side of the work that is away from you as you work the row.
5. To move yarn from front to back or back to front, bring yarn between needles. Take care not to wrap yarn over a needle, this could create an additional st.
6. Always sl sts as if to purl. On RS rows, sl sts as if to purl with yarn at back; on WS rows, sl sts as if to purl with yarn at front.
7. Only one color is used on each row. Do not cut the unused color between color changes, carry the unused color along the side edge of your work.

Slip Stitch Afghan Reviewed by peggy anger on 2014-09-27 *****
A beautiful and fun afghan to knit. I gave it as a wedding gift. May do another in different color scheme. Yarn was superb to use.
