Studio Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Traveling Cable pattern.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

4/3 LC (4 over 3 left cross) Slip 4 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k4 from cable needle.
3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
4/3 RC (4 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back of work, k4, then k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

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 to make a new st.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is worked in one piece in a Traveling Cable pattern with ribbing at each end.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
3. The Traveling Cable pattern can be worked by following the written instructions or by following the chart. If working from the chart, read RS rows of chart from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. The Traveling Cable pattern works columns of eyelets (made with yarn overs) between the cables. Sts are picked up along both sides of each eyelet column for faux cables.
5. Making the eyelets with yarn overs will increase the st count on that specific row, but the st count will be reduced on the following row by working k2tog's or p2tog's
6. Faux cables are created by working in St st (k on RS, p on WS) over picked up sts to make St st bands, then wrapping these bands at spaced intervals.

Faux Cable Left Half
Make same as right half, picking up sts to the left of the same column of eyelet sts and working so that RS of St st faces the eyelets.
Rep right and left faux cable halves along all columns of eyelets.
Wrap Faux Cables
The faux cable sections will curl naturally toward the RS (the knit side).
Note: Our instructions are for working with a long length of yarn to wrap the faux cables.
If you prefer, work with shorter lengths of yarn, knotting each as you finish working with it.
Cut a 90 in. (228.5 cm) length of yarn. Thread length into blunt needle. Beg at one end of Afghan, draw needle from WS to RS through first eyelet. *Wrap yarn around right faux cable, from WS to RS around band near the same eyelet, then from RS to WS of Afghan through same eyelet, then from WS to RS up through next eyelet; rep from * to opposite end of Afghan. After last wrap, knot yarn on WS. Rep to wrap the left faux cable, then rep to wrap right and left halves of all faux cables.

FINISHING
