PATTERN
This is a very portable and enjoyable afghan to knit, made in strips and woven together. The hounds-tooth pattern is worked by slipping stitches and therefore much easier than intarsia. The scalloped crochet edge adds an attractive finishing touch.
On the photo Color A is pink (5 balls) and Color B is black (4 balls). There are so many interesting combinations.
The pattern is very clearly written and includes:
• Schematic
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A pattern helpline
• A link to find substitute yarn
