DIRECTIONS:

GAUGE:

6 hdc + 5 rows = about 4" (10 cm).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR 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.

STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
hdc2tog (hdc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.
hdc3tog (hdc 3 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all 7 loops on hook – 2 sts decreased.

1. First triangular section of Afghan is worked in 2 halves – an increase half and then a decrease half.
2. A second triangular section is worked along one edge of the first triangular section.
3. Colors are changed on both sections of Afghan following the Stripe Sequence.
