Mountain Mists Afghan

Lion Brand« Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

9 sts + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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. Five strips are worked separately, then sewed together to make the Afghan.
2. Each Strip is worked in triangle sections created by picking up sts across the previous triangle.
3. When changing color, do not cut old color(s) until instructed. Carry color not in use along side edge of piece, ready for the next time you need it.
