Patchwork Sampler Afghan

Lion Brand Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

19 sts + 27 rows = 4 inches (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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Bobble (K, p, k) in next stitch; turn and purl these 3 stitches; turn and slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, then pass the 2 slipped stitches over the knit stitch.

Do not add selvage sts; all sts for seaming are included in the instructions.

Patchwork Sampler Afghan Reviewed by PATRICIA WERTMAN on 2012-03-13 *****
This afghan is indeed lovely and fun to knit! My granddaughter, for whom I knit it, loves it. I did think, however, that the chevron pattern was a bit indistinct unless the light was absolutely right. I, too, made the afghan 9 panels wide and 11 blocks long. Casting on 244 stitches for the border works perfectly (26 stitches per panel and 5 for each border). Be absolutely sure to do a gauge square. Mine came out perfect width-wise, but slightly long lengthwise. I chose not to change needles and needed 15 balls of yarn, plus just enough of a 16th ball to do 3 rows of border. Gauge squares are important!
