SIZE:

About 51” x 51” (129.5 x 129.5 cm)

GAUGE:

8 dc = 4” (10 cm).
BE SURE TO CHECK GAUGE.
When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Notes:
1. Afghan is worked in 4 concentric spirals beg at center. Each spiral is worked in a different color. Do not turn at the end of rnds
2. Each rnd is worked in 4 colors. The last loop of the previous color is placed on a holder or a removable stitch marker while stitches of the next color are worked.
3. To create the spirals after the first rnd, A sts are worked only into the B sts of the previous rnd, B sts are worked only into the C sts, C sts are worked only into the D sts, and D sts are worked only into the A sts of the previous rnd.

DIRECTIONS:

With A, ch 3; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 3 (always counts as a dc), 2 dc in ring, remove loop from hook and place on holder; *draw up a loop of B in ring following last dc made, ch 3, 2 dc in ring, remove loop from hook and place on holder; rep from * with C and then with D – 12 dc at the end of this rnd (3 dc of each color).
Rnd 2: *Return A loop to hook, working across B sts, dc in 2nd ch of B ch-3, (dc, ch 3, dc) in top of same ch-3 (corner made), dc in next 2 dc, remove loop from hook and place on holder; rep from * with B and work into C sts, then rep from * again with C and work into D sts; return D loop to hook, working across A sts, dc in 2nd ch of first A ch-3, (dc, ch 3, dc) in top of same ch-3, dc in each dc to next ch-3 sp, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-3 sp, dc in each remaining A dc, remove loop from hook and place on holder.
Rnd 3: *Return A loop to hook, dc in each dc to next ch-sp, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-sp, dc in each remaining B dc, remove loop from hook and place on holder; rep from * with B and work into C sts, then rep from * again with C and work into D sts; return D loop to hook, dc in each dc to next ch-sp, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-sp, dc in each remaining A dc, remove loop from hook and place on holder.
Rep Rnd 3 until piece measures about 50 in. (127 cm) at widest point.
Last Rnd: Return A loop to hook, dc in each B dc to next ch-sp, sc in next ch-sp. Fasten off A. Return B loop to hook, dc in each C dc to next ch-sp, sc in next ch-sp. Fasten off B. Return C loop to hook, dc in each D dc to next ch-sp, sc in next ch-sp. Fasten off C. Return D loop to hook, dc in each A dc to next ch-sp, sc in next ch-sp. Fasten off D.

FINISHING:

Edging
Rnd 1 (RS): From RS, join A with sc in any st of last rnd, sc in each st around, working 3 sc in each corner sc; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around, working 3 sc in each corner; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
