This is the pattern for the Irish Wedding Aran Afghan I created for my niece on her wedding day. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did and that the lucky recipient loves it as much as my niece does.
The finished blanket is approximately 60'' wide by 72'' long, plus an 8'' Triple Knot Fringe at each end. It is made up of 5 panels knitted separately and then seamed together. This is a very warm, cozy and cuddly afghan. The center of each panel is made up of Hugs and Kisses with symmetrical twists and cables on each side. The Hugs and Kisses make it the perfect wedding gift or for anyone that you just LOVE!
Included with the pattern are instructions for materials, knitting, cabling and fringe, as well as photographs.
