Lion Brand Construction Notes:
Afghan is worked in strips. Strips are joined, then edging is worked on top, bottom and side edges. If desired, you can work the rectangles of each color that make up the strips as separate pieces. Arrange them as desired and seam them to make strips. Then finish as Strip Version.

Schematic showing squares layout is provided.
