        • LION BRAND® WOOL-EASE® THICK & QUICK® (Art. #640)
          • #099 Fisherman (D) 1 ball
          • #138 Cranberry (E) 2 balls
          • #143 Claret (F) 1 ball

          • Crochet hook size N-13 (9 mm)
          • Large-eyed blunt needle

            • SIZE
            • About 44 x 48 in. (112 x 122 cm)

            • GAUGE
            • 6 hdc + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).
            • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
            • When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.

            • NOTES
            • 1. Afghan is made from 7 Strips. Each Strip is worked by following a Stripe Sequence.
            • 2. A border is worked around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.
            • 3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
            • 4. We used almost every bit of yarn in this project! Leave fairly short yarn tails and, if necessary, use scrap yarn to sew the strips together.
