Four and a half Hour Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

4 Sts and 3 rows = 3 in with yarn doubled in pat st 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

Afghan is worked with two strands held together throughout

TRIM: With right side facing, sc in each dc and dc in each sc along the edge to corner, hdc and sc in corner, then work along side edge *sc into each dc "bump" of scallop and dc into each "valley" or "ditch" of scallop*' to next corner, working an extra 2 sc at last st, sc evenly across foundation to next corner, hdc and dc in corner, then work along side edge as for other side edge (from * to *) working an extra 2 sc at last st, join with slip slip st to beg sc.

Four and a half Hour Afghan Reviewed by Terry Tuttle on 2013-04-08 *****
I LOVE THIS PATTERN!!! I have made it more times than I can count. If I follow the instructions it takes me about 5 1/2 hours. I've modified it for as small as a baby crib size and as large as a king size bed. I have also used this pattern with many different yarns and hook sizes. It always turns out great and everyone is thrilled when they get one. Eventually I'll have to make one for myself.
