GAUGE:
9 stitches + 17 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). 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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
This afghan is knit in stockinette stitch with a border of 5 stitches of garter stitch on the outside edges to keep the afghan from rolling up.



NOTE: SPECIAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR VELVETSPUN YARN
To maintain full plushness, a knot should be tied at the beginning of each skein and at both ends when joining yarn.

Handle the yarn gently and do not unravel or re-use.

A minimal amount of shedding is normal with this yarn.
