Lion Brand Notes:

  1. Afghan is worked in intarsia. Use a separate ball of yarn for each color section. Twist yarns on WS to prevent gaps between color sections.

  2. For ease in working, print out all charts, then tape charts together following chart assembly diagram to make a single large chart.

  3. Charts are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS). Follow Charts from right to left on RS rows, from left to right on WS rows.

  4. Stitch markers are placed between the Garter st borders and between the individual Charts. Slip the markers as you come to them.

  5. Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
