Texture Stripe Afghan

Lion Brand® Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Rows 2 and 3

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Picot puff (Sc, ch 2, sl st in sc) in ch-1 sp.

NOTES:

1. Afghan is worked in one piece changing colors to create stripes.
2. 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. Fasten off old color.
3. An edging is worked around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.
4. When you see ‘– 12 sts’ in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
