Cozy Textured Afghan

by Linda

A casual worsted weight afghan with great texture, worked in panels of alternating colours (stripes).

    Panel One:
  1. With colour one, loosely cast on 33 stitches.
  2. Knit first st. *Yarn fwd, k2tog* to end - 33 sts. Turn.
  3. Repeat row above til you've used up almost 200g of your main colour. If all goes well, this should take you to over 5 feet in length. The panel will be somewhere in the area of 9.25 inches wide.
  4. Make 1 additional panel exactly the same. (I used 400 grams of yarn altogether.)
    Panel Two:
  1. With colour two, loosely cast on 21 stitches.
  2. Work the same as panel one, to the same length as panel one. This panel will be around 5.75 inches in width.
  3. Make a total of 3 panels like this. (Mine took 400 grams in total.)
    Panel Three:
  1. With colour three, loosely cast on 13 stitches.
  2. Work the same as panel one, to the same length as panel one. It'll be about 3.5 inches wide.
  3. Make a total of 4 panels like this. (Mine took 300 grams altogether.)
    Assembly:
  1. Arrange completed panels in a symmetrical pattern (by panel number):
    2 - 3 - 1 - 3 - 2 - 3 - 1 - 3 - 2
    I used a dark colour for Panel 1, a bright for 2, and a light neutral for 3.
  2. Join panels together by sewing from the wrong side, single crocheting them together, etc.
  3. Add a single crochet edging, fringe, etc. as desired.
  4. Cuddle up and enjoy!
