Pattern NotesWeave in loose ends as work progresses.Each colored row (consisting of a work-off pass and a pick-up pass) requires approximately 14 yards.For the return portion of a row when you work the next lp off the hook following the ch 3 it actually creates a 4th ch so that on the next row when you sk a ch, pick up a lp in each of the next 2 chs, you will be picking up lps in the center 2 of 4 chs.


Afghan

Row 1: With desired scrap color, ch 244, retaining all lps on hook, working through bump on back of ch, draw up a lp in 2nd bump from hook, draw up a lp in each of the rem bumps, first half of row completed.

Row 4: Pick up lps as for Row 3, drop white at end of row, but do not fasten off, instead carry along side edge, twisting to avoid holes. For return, place next scrap color on hook and continue as for Row 3.

Row 87: Rep Row 2.


After completing the return portion of Row 87, bind off in the following manner, ch 1, sk first cl, *[pick up lp under next vertical bar and draw through lp already on hook] 9 times, [pick up lp in next ch and draw through lp already on hook] 4 times, [pick up lp under next vertical bar and draw through lp already on hook] 9 times, sk cl, rep from * across, ending with pick up lp in top of final cl and draw through lp on hook, fasten off.
