Level 2 Knit Afghan

Lion Brand® Lion's Pride® Woolspun®

GAUGE:

26 sts + 33 rows = about 6 in. (15 cm) over Rows 1-10.

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

STEP 1
With A, cast on 161 sts.
Row 1 (RS): K1, (p1, k1) twice, *k8, k1, (p1, k1) twice (be sure to refer to the diagram and note that you are working (p1, k1) twice, so the full stitch repeat = 13 sts); rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K1, (p1, k1) twice, *p8, k1, (p1, k1) twice; rep from * to end of row.
Rows 3-8: Rep Rows 1 and 2.
Row 9 (Cable Row): K1, (p1, k1) twice, * (slip 4 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k4, then k4 sts from cable needle), k1, (p1, k1) twice; rep from * to end of row.
Row 10: Rep Row 2.

STEP 2
Rows 11-70:
Rep Rows 1-10 six times.
STEP 3
Row 71:
With B, knit.
Rows 72-80: With B, rep Rows 2-10.
Rows 81-140: Rep Rows 1-10 six times.

STEP 4
Row 141:
With C, knit.
Rows 142-150: With C, rep Rows 2-10.
Rows 151-210: Rep Rows 1-10 six times.

STEP 5 Row 211: With D, knit.
Rows 212-220: With D, rep Rows 2-10.
Rows 221-270: Rep Rows 1-10 five times.
Rows 271-276: Rep Rows 1-6.
Note: On the next row, k2tog's are worked to decrease the number of sts – this makes the cables look more balanced when you bind off.
Row 277: K1, (p1, k1) twice, *k2, (k2tog) twice, k3, (p1, k1) twice; rep from * to end of row – 137 sts.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Level 2 Knit Afghan Reviewed by Laura Maxwell on 2014-09-23 *
There is something wrong with the instructions. Look at Row 2 instructions. You have 161 sts. You K1 (p1, k1) twice, that leaves 156 sts in the row. The next instruction is to *p8, (k1,p1,k1) to the end. That is only a set of 11 sts which is not a multiple of 156. Please correct ASAP. I want to make this afghan for my daughter but can not start with bad directions.
