Level 3 Crocheted Afghan

Lion Brand« Lion's Pride« Woolspun«

GAUGE:

1 Square = about 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 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

NOTES:

1. Afghan is made from 16 Squares sewn together following Diagram.
2. A border is worked around assembled Afghan.
3. 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. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.

With A, ch 5; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.

STEP 2
Row 1:
With A, ch 3 (counts as first dc in this row and in all following rows), (dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ring – you will have 4 dc and 1 ch-2 sp at the end of this row.

Row 4: With B, ch 3, turn, dc in next st and in each st to ch-2 sp, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in each st to end of row, changing to A in last st – 16 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.

STEP 5
Row 5:
With A, repeat Row 4, changing to C in last st – 20 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.
Row 6: With C, repeat Row 4, changing to D in last st – 24 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.
