New Slant Afghan

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

12 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in 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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is worked in 4 Strips. The Strips are made of wedge shaped sections. The wedges are shaped with scs, hdcs and dcs, and change color following the Color Sequence. The Strips are sewed together to make the Afghan.
2. The color is changed on every other row. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Fasten off old color.
3. Cords and bobbles are worked separately, then attached to complete the Afghan.

FINISHING
Lay Strips in numerical order side by side onto a flat surface, matching curves.
Note: Upper and lower edges will be uneven. Sew Strips together along adjoining edges.
Bobbles (make 126, in colors as desired)
Ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 5 sc in ring; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, 3 sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc - 15 sc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, (sc3tog) 5 times; join with sl st in first sc - 5 sts.
Fasten off.

Attaching Bobbles
Attach 16 Bobbles to each inner curve across long sides of Afghan - 3 groups of 16 Bobbles each along each side of Afghan.
Across each short end of Afghan, attach 5 Bobbles at each end of each seam between Strips - 3 groups of 5 Bobbles each across each short end of Afghan.

Notes:
1. Each Bobble is attached to the Afghan with a cord.
2. Cords can be twisted cords, as explained in the instructions below, or a crocheted chain.
3. We used a yarn color that contrasted with the Bobble color to make each cord.
To attach Bobbles with Twisted Cord
Cut a 15 in. (38 cm) length of yarn in desired color. Gently separate the length of yarn into 4 strands.
With one hand at each end of one strand, twist the strand until tightly twisted, then fold strand in half and let it twist back on itself. Knot ends about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from fold.
From RS, insert hook through Afghan, then through fold of twisted cord. Draw fold of cord through edge of Afghan, forming a loop. Pull ends of cord through this loop, then pull to tighten. Sew Bobble to ends of cord.
To attach Bobbles with Crocheted Chain
If you'd prefer to make a simple crocheted chain to attach each Bobble, simply join yarn to Afghan with a sl st. Make a ch about 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) long, then fasten off. Sew Bobble to end of ch.

Weave in ends.
