4-Hour Bias Baby Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

4 sts + 4 rows = 4 inches [10cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) using 4 strands of yarn held together. 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over—2 sts decreased.

NOTES:

An easy afghan knit on the diagonal from corner to corner. Four strands of yarn are held together throughout. Due to the nature of the fabric, gauge may vary throughout the knitting

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a loop fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


AFGHAN
With one strand of each color held together (4 strands), cast on 3 sts.
Rows 1 and 2 Inc in first st, k to end of row – 5 sts after row 2.
Row 3 (RS) K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1.
Row 4 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 3-4 until diagonal edge measures about 30” [76 cm] – 43 sts.
Row 5 (RS) K1, yo, sk2p, k to last st, yo, k1.
Row 6 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 5-6 until longer diagonal edge measures about 36” [91.5 cm].
Row 7 (RS) K1, yo, sk2p, k to last 4 sts, k3tog, yo, k1.
Row 8 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 7-8 until 7 sts remain.
Next row Sk2p, k1, k3tog - 3 sts.
Next row Purl.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Tassels (make 4)
Holding all four yarns together, wrap yarn around 6” [15.25] cardboard 17 times. Cut a 10” [25.5 cm] length of any of the yarns and thread doubled onto large-eyed blunt needle. Insert needle under all strands at one edge of cardboard. Pull tightly and knot securely near strands. Cut yarn loops at opposite edge of cardboard. Cut an 8” [20.5 cm] length of yarn and wrap tightly around loops 1 1/2" [4 cm] below top knot to form Tassel neck. Knot securely; thread ends into needle and weave ends to center of Tassel. Trim Tassel ends evenly. Sew one tassel to each corner of afghan.
