Neutral Cabled Afghan

Lion Brand« Hometown USA«

GAUGE:

7 1/2 sts + 11 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Panel I pattern.
10 1/2 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Panel II pattern.
9 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Panel III pattern.
10 1/2 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Panel IV pattern.
9 1/2 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Panel V 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

MB (make bobble) (K1, p1, k1, p1, k1) in indicated st (making 5 sts from 1 st), turn, p5, turn, k2tog, k1, k2tog, turn, p3tog, turn, sl the p3tog to right needle.
2/1 LT (2 over 1 left twist): Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, p1, then k2 from cable needle.
2/1 RT (2 over 1 right twist): Slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in back, k2, then p1 from cable needle.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 5 Panels. Sts for each Panel are picked up across edge(s) of previous Panel(s).
2. Refer to diagram when picking up sts.
3. Afghan is worked back and forth on a circular needle. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts.
4. Each Panel is worked in a different pattern st. Pattern sts can be worked by following the written instructions or the charts. When working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.

Neutral Cabled Afghan Reviewed by Michelle on 2014-08-28 *
This pattern has a lot of errors in it. It really needs to be test knit by someone in lion brand.
