Bar Quilt Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm); 4 rows = 5 in. (12.5 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 from 5 Strips, worked individually then sewed together.
2. Strips are worked in rnds after working a beg Foundation Row.
3. Edging is worked around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.

Love this! I was short a skein of yarn so I changed the border. The first round was the same as in the instructions. I skipped the second round round. For the third, I chained 2, turned, and used half double crochet around instead of single. It was beautiful!
