Stripe It Rich Afghan

Lion Brand® Heartland

GAUGE:

12 sc + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
Surface Slip Stitch

1. Make a sl knot, but do not place it on hook.
2. Insert hook from RS to WS through crochet fabric.
3. Place the sl knot on hook and draw loop to RS (keeping beg tail and working yarn on WS).
4. *Insert hook from RS to WS through fabric a short distance from last insertion location, yarn over, draw loop through fabric and through loop on hook (surface sl st made); rep from * inserting hook along a line of sts as specified in pattern, to create a stripe.
5. Fasten off.
Note: To end a section of surface sl sts. Remove hook from loop and take hook to WS. Insert hook from WS to RS, place loop on hook, draw loop through to WS. Cut yarn. Draw tail through final loop and pull tight.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 5 Striped and 4 Connecting Strips that are slip stitched together following the Assembly Diagram.
2. Stripes are created on Connecting Strips by working surface sl st lines.
3. 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 st.
