6 Hour Afghan
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner
SIZE: One Size
34 x 54 in. 86.5 x 137 cm, not including fringe
2 balls each of four different colors (A, B, C, D)
Knitting Needles - Size 50 (25 mm) (‘Speed Stix’)
Crochet Hook - Size K-10.5 (6.5 mm) (to attach fringe)
Due to the nature of the fabric when working with Speed Stix, gauge may vary throughout the knitting and is not crucial to this project.
Worked with 4 strands held together.
Available on LionBrand.com in different colorways:
80215AD (Candy Apple, Earth, Saffron, Hepplewhite)
80216AD (Fawn, Earth, Prairie, Barley)
81110AD (Prairie, Cream, Barley)
90031AD (Cream, Earth, Prairie, Barley)
All the patterns call for 4 strands of yarn held together. The difference between the different patterns is whether you have 2 strands of 1 color and the other 2 strands are different colors or you have 4 different color strands.
Because of the texture of Homespun, the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or Fray CheckTM by Dritz®.
