My First Slip-Stitch Afghan

With knitwear designer Rhonda Fargnoli as your guide, create a sampler afghan featuring colors of your choice and six slip-stitch patterns that are tempting to the touch. Begin by knitting a textured central square in two colors – without ever having to carry both colors in the same row. With your central square bound off, you'll knit your first log with right- and left-twist cables. During class, you'll create five more logs, each with its own slip-stitch patterning. When you're finished with your first full square, you'll have all the techniques you need to finish an afghan that's as intricate as it is inviting. Plus, you can even use your new slip-stitch skills to create beautiful garments and accessories alike!
