Lover's Knot Afghan

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in OXOX Cable pattern, slightly stretched. 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.

Just finished! 25th anniversary present for hubbie. He is wearing it right now! Took over a year but worth it. Lovely pattern and great instructions. The wool blend recommended is so nice to work with and nice and warm!
