Moss Stitch Afghan

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in pattern st.

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:

STITCH PATTERN (worked on an odd number of sts)
Rows 1, 3, 4 and 6 *P 1, k 1; repeat from * to last st, p 1.
Rows 2 and 5 *K 1, p 1; repeat from * to last st, k 1.
Repeat Rows 1-6 for pattern.


AFGHAN (Throw/Lapghan)

Last Row Work in pattern Row 3 or 6, binding off in pattern across row. Weave in ends.

Reviewed by Melva Godwin on 2014-02-19 *****
I simply adore this pattern. Mine is in progress and it is turning out beautifully. I chose to use the WETQ in Fisherman. It is for my sister-in-law's birthday and I know she will love it. Very easy pattern but I CO a few extra stitches and will make longer than recommended.
