This 8-page pattern gives instructions for knitting a reversible afghan in a stitch pattern combining double knitting (which creates vertical stripes) and garter stitch (which creates horizontal stripes). The afghan is scrumptiously soft, and very cuddly. It includes complete instructions for making each afghan (one from Lion Brand Homespun and one from Bernat Satin), plus tips for knitting the pattern stitch, photos of the completed afghans, and a list of abbreviations.
***Please note that the yardage given below is for the Homespun; the Satin will require almost 1200 yds. total.

I was taught the basics of knitting, crochet, embroidery, and sewing by my grandmother when I was young. I have found that I enjoy doing a variety of fiber related crafts, and have over the years learned to spin yarn, weave, tat, braid, felt and bead. But the greatest satisfaction for me comes from using my God-given creativity to create my own designs and techniques.
