Graphic Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

9 1/2 sts + 7 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) over rows.

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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is worked in one piece, in alternating rows of sc and dc and changing color to make stripes and blocks of color.
2. Afghan can be worked by following the written instructions or the chart. When working from chart, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Drop old color to WS of work, but do not fasten off.
4. Do not carry unused color(s) across WS of work. Use a separate ball of yarn for each color section. Before beginning, wind A into 3 separate balls and C, D, E, and F into 2 separate balls each.
