Cast On 84 Stitches (full 28” board).
Place anchor yarn of 50” in contrasting color, heavy yarn.
Work entire afghan in Stockinette Stitch for a total of 200 rows.
Bind Off very loosely:
Do not cut yarn. Use yarn for the Bind Off. Start bind off at yarn end. Slip crochet
hook into (1) loop either board. Wrap yarn around hook and pull thru loop on needle. Pick up next
loop (opposite board). Wrap yarn around hook and pull thru both loops on hook. Pick up next loop on
opposite board. Wrap yarn around hook and pull through (2) loops. Proceed with this process across
the stitches, always alternating with the boards. This bind off process will give you full
stretch-ability of the edges of afghan.
Once last loop is off the board, do secure knot with tail of yarn and tuck tail into knitting.
Attach yarn to bottom edge at anchor yarn. Do same bind off, and then, remove the anchor yarn.
Each end of afghan has 33 fringes. Each fringe consists of 2 strands of yarn, folded in half, to
create 4 strands when completed. Attach with the crochet hook.
Cut 132 strands of yarn approximately 16” long (59 yds of yarn).
When attaching the fringe, start with center of edge of afghan, and then do each end
edge. Add next fringe to center of each space created between the fringes. This process will keep
the 33 fringes even across the edges of afghan.
Once completed on both ends of afghan, you are complete and it’s ready to throw
across the sofa or bed, or wrap up and give a beautiful gift.
