Pattern Description:

Who would believe the beautiful stitch used for this afghan was created by just knitting and purling? The stitch has a lovely predictable rhythm to it and with no fancy cables or twists to slow you down, it goes along quickly. To speed things up even further, it's worked in popular Lion Brand Wool-Ease(r) Thick & Quick(r) Super Bulky Yarn.

However, measuring in at 49" x 63", this is a big project and does take some time (and yarn) to make. With that in mind, 3 other less daunting sizes are included in the instructions. The lap size in particular, measures a cosy ?26 1/2" x 33" and takes only 4 balls; that's just about right for Holiday gift giving.


9 sts and 12 rows = 4" (10cm) in stockinette st
