Medallion Sampler Afghan

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

14 dc + 8 rows = about 4 in. (10 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 worked in joined rnds with RS facing.
2. Afghan is worked in 15 different sections, using 8 different pattern stitches: Center Square, Basketweave, V-st Pattern, Cluster Pattern, Owl Pattern, Scallop Pattern, Fan Pattern, and Grid Pattern.
3. The pattern stitches can be worked by following the written instructions or the stitch diagrams. There is a stitch diagram for each pattern stitch. Each stitch diagram, except for the Center Square, shows only one side of the afghan, rep the pattern a total of 4 times to work around the entire edge.

Medallion Sampler Afghan Reviewed by robertaduley@yahoo.com on 2014-09-12 *****
This afghan is a lot of fun to do! I learned how to do cables with the owl pattern stitches in the middle. The only things I changed besides the colors is; On Round 2 of the fan section I made dc's instead of Sc's and on the last round I put a sc picot every third stitch with 5sc in the corners. I also added a 3-D flower in the middle to give it some "pop". Lovely design!
