Basketweave And Slip Stitch Afghan

Lion Brand® Heartland

GAUGE:

19 sts + 39 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Slip St 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

NOTES:

1. Four Panels are worked, then sewn together to make Afghan.
2. Each Panel is worked in alternating blocks of Slip st and Basketweave.
3. The Slip st blocks are all worked the same 2 colors. When working the Slip st blocks, carry color not in use along side edge of piece.
4. An edging is worked along each side of the completed Afghan.
