Quintessential Country Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 hdc + 5 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:

hdc2tog (hdc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.
hdc3tog (hdc 3 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 7 loops on hook – 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 2 triangular sections. In the first triangle, stitches are increased on one edge in the first half, then decreased in the second half. The second triangle is worked across the edge of the first triangle. Stitches are decreased on both edges of the second triangle.
2. 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.
