Level 1 Knit Neutral Afghan

Lion Brand« Lion's Pride« Woolspun«

GAUGE:

14 sts + 19 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS).

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 Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) with Garter st (k every row) borders.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. Work back and forth on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.
3. The yarn color is changed to make stripes. To change color, cut the old color leaving a long yarn tail. Begin working with new color leaving a long beginning tail. If you like, knot the tails together until you finish the Afghan, then unknot them when you weave them in.


STEP 1
With L, cast on 130 sts.

STEP 2
Work in Garter st (k every row) for 5 rows.

STEP 3
Change to A.
With A, and beginning with a RS (knit) row, work in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on RS) for 20 rows.

STEP 4
Change to B.
With B, continue in Stockinette st for 20 rows.
Change to C.
Continue in Stockinette st, working 20 rows each in the following color sequence, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J and K.
Change to L.
With L, work in Garter st for 5 rows.
Bind off.

STEP 5
Side Borders (make 2)

With L, cast on 224 sts.
Work in Garter st for 5 rows.
Bind off.
Sew a Side Border to each long side of Afghan.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.
