    • NOTES:
    • Afghan is made in 2 sections. The sections are constructed in an interesting way – sometimes working sts across existing pieces and sometimes sewing pieces together.
    • Take a careful look at the diagram before beginning so that you understand the construction process. Continue to refer to the diagram as you work.
    • Section I of the Afghan is made from 17 rectangles; Section II is made of 16 rectangles.
    • The assembled sections are sewn together to make the Afghan.
    • To change yarn color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
