Lion Brand Construction Notes:
Afghan is worked in several steps. First, all of yarns A, B and C are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on circular needle to make large pieces. These large pieces are then felted. Octagons and Squares are cut from the felted fabric and then embroidered. Embroidered pieces are sewn together to make the Afghan, then additional embroidery is added to the completed Afghan.
A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
