Surrounded Afghan and Lap Robe
This design forms a continuous edging on all sides as you go: when you’re done, it’s done.
Surrounded can easily be resized for any width or length. I have included instructions for two sizes and additional information on how to adapt the design to different sizes and gauges. The Lap Robe and Baby Blanket are identical – only the color and recipient give it away!
The handsome, unfussy style makes it perfect for the men in our lives!
