Quilt Block Afghan

Lion Brand« Heartland

GAUGE:

One Square = 8 x 8 in. (20.5 x 20.5 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:

shell Work 7 dc in indicated st or sp.
square-join Drop loop from hook, insert hook from RS to WS through the corresponding ch-sp of the neighboring Square, return the dropped loop to the hook and draw it through the ch-sp.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 35 Squares joined tog following the Assembly Diagram.
2. Each Square is worked in three L-shaped sections and a small upper square. Border rnds are worked around the outer edges of each Square and Squares are joined tog while working the last border rnd.
3. To keep this project small and portable for as long as possible, you may wish to make all 35 Squares up to the Border. Then work the 2 Border rnds, joining the Squares tog while working Rnd 2.

SQUARES 2-35
Work same as Square I through Rnd 1 of border.
Notes:
1. Each Square is joined to neighboring Square(s) across one side edge. The ch-2 sps across the side edge and the corner ch-4 sps at the beg and end of the side are joined as Rnd 2 of the border is worked. Ch-sps are joined by carefully threading the ch of the current Square through the corresponding ch-sp of the neighboring Square. Read the instructions for "square-join" in the Stitch Explanations section above.
2. Refer to Assembly Diagram for placement. Note the number of neighboring Squares to which the current Square needs to be joined. If you join Squares in the order indicated in the Assembly Diagram each Square will need to be joined to at most 2 neighboring Squares.
3. If the current Square needs to be joined to only one neighboring Square work Rnd 2 (join one side). If the current Square needs to be joined to 2 neighboring Squares work Rnd 2 (join two sides).
4. Hold the current Square and the neighboring Square with WS tog, sts matching, and RS of current Square facing you.
Rnd 2 (join one side): Ch 1, sk first sc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp and (sc, ch 4, sc) in each corner ch-2 sp to first corner of side to be joined to neighboring Square; (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in first corner ch-4 sp of side to be joined, (sc, ch 1, square-join, ch 1, sc) in each ch-2 sp across side to be joined, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in last corner ch-4 sp of side to be joined; (sc, ch 2, sc) in each rem ch-1 sp around working (sc, ch 4, sc) in each rem corner ch-2 sp; join with sl st in first sc.
Fasten off.
Rnd 2 (join two side): Ch 1, sk first sc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp and (sc, ch 4, sc) in each corner ch-2 sp to first corner of side to be joined to first neighboring Square; (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in first corner ch-4 sp of side to be joined, (sc, ch 1, square-join, ch 1, sc) in each ch-2 sp across side to be joined, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-4 sp of side to be joined; joining to side of next neighboring Square, (sc, ch 1, square-join, ch 1, sc) in each ch-2 sp across side to be joined, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-4 sp; (sc, ch 2, sc) in each rem ch-1 sp around working (sc, ch 4, sc) in each rem corner ch-2 sp; join with sl st in first sc.
Fasten off.

Quilt Block Afghan Reviewed by J Moore on 2014-10-06 *****
I absolutely love this pattern! Because of the way that you make the blocks, the finished afghan is completely reversible without any extra effort on your part! I wanted more reds in my blocks, so I chose to use Vanna yarn and Heartland yarn together. It is beautiful! Thanks, Lion Brand!
