Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knitting skills

Pattern Description:

Inspired by a traditional Amish quilt pattern, this afghan is constructed of Domino squares and triangles, alternating large black squares with colorful squares composed of 9 small squares. Every square or triangle is picked up from another, so there are no seams to sew.


11 sts = 2" (exact gauge not important)


  • Nos. 5 No. 6 needles
  • ~ 20 50-g skeins of DK or Sport weight yarn - I used Brown Sheep singles, Indiecita Alpaca, Jo Sharp DK, and Harrisville Shetland DK. Half of the yarn is black or a dark color, the rest mixed light colors.

You Will Also Need:

  • locking markers or small stitch holders
  • Yarn needle for working in ends
