Cozy Loom-Knit Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

2.3 sts=1 inch 2.5 rows=1 inch 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:

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.

AFGHAN
Cast On 84 Stitches (full 28” board)

Place anchor yarn. (contrasting color, thick yarn.)
Work entire afghan in Stockinette Stitch for a total of 200 rows or until afghan is the size that you desire. Be sure to save (2) skeins of yarn for the fringe.

Bind Off very loosely:

Start at end opposite the yarn attachment. With crochet hook, lift (2) loops alternating from one board to the other. Pull the loop closest to hook thru the other loop. Pick up one additional loop from opposite board. Pull (1) loop thru the other on crochet hook. Continue this across the board until only one loop remains. Pull yarn tail thru last loop for a knot. The yarn tail will be worked into the fringe.

Do same Bind Off at anchor yarn starting at end opposite the yarn tail.

FRINGE:
Prepare the fringe from (2) skeins of yarn. Wrap yarn around a box or trash can that measures approximately 24” around. Wrap entire skein of yarn. Cut, so that you have strands approximately 24” long. Place piece of tape around one end of strands. You can pull from it as you work the fringe.

Each fringe is (2) strands of yarn. Place crochet hook into edge stitch at one end. Fold (2) strands so that they are not even. Fold in half and with crochet hook, pull the folded loops thru the edge stitch on knitting. Pull the strands of yarn (4 once folded) thru the loop. This will knot the fringe onto the afghan. Insert the crochet hook into next edge stitch. Proceed across the end of afghan for about 1/3 of the edge. Move to opposite edge and work back to meet the other completed fringe. The result will be extremely thick and luxurious.

Work opposite end of afghan with 2nd skein of yarn.

Cozy Loom-Knit Afghan Reviewed by ELIZABETH Hebert on 2010-10-19 *****
I just completed this for a friend. She'll be giving it as a Christmas present to her Mother. It is absolutely the easiest thing I've ever made. Gorgeous, and luxurious to cover yourself with. It did take me about 6 months to make, as I didn't work on it daily.
