Notes

This will be a lovely project to work on. I’ve always wanted to make an afghan. And what better excuse than to make for my fiance’s wedding gift? I’ve already knit test swatches for the seed stitch and the raspberry knit pattern, so I should be okay to go!

Pattern Notes:

  • 16 rows of seed stitch on both ends, and 10 stitches of seed stitch on either side of main pattern.
  • Will have 45 reps of the pattern
  • Blanket will have 392 knit rows total

I’ll be adding fringe as well, hopefully. 30 skeins of my yarn should do it….. Though, on further review, I realized that I bought WAAAYYY too much yarn. OH WELL TIME TO MAKE TWO BLANKETS

Swatch Dimensions
Seed Stitch: 17x16 stitches = 4” x 2”
Raspberry Stitch: 17x32 stitches = 4” x 4”
