Image of Chevron Afghan

This chevron afghan may look complicated but it's not! It's simply knitted in several strips and sewn together. The heathered shades of Homespun® used in this throw help create a beautiful color gradient.

Chevron Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

11 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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:

M1 (make 1): An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.

NOTES:

1. Ten individual Strips are worked, then sewn together to make Afghan.
2. Each Strip is worked in Garter st (k every row) with 2 colors and with increases and decreases to create the zig zag pattern.
