6 Movie Afghan



Rating: Beginner

Size: 66"x66"

Materials: 8 Skeins of Lionbrand Homespun. 4 of each color. I used Ranch (790-326) and Cream (790-393) Size 19 (15mm) circular needle and yarn needle

Pattern notes: You will be working with 2 strands (1 of each color) throughout. It is wise to knot the ends of Homespun as soon as you pull them out of the skein. Keep these knots in, even after weaving in the ends. This prevents fraying.

Pattern

Cast on 85 stitches using long-tail method

Knit 4 rows, then begin pattern

Row 1: K whole row

Row 2: K4, P77, K4

Repeat these 2 rows until you have your desired length. The sample was knitted to 64 inches at this point. END WITH ROW 1


Knit 4 rows

BO

Weave in all yarn ends.
