Notes

Well, I need three new afghans for three new couches. Not huge, just throw size, to be both decorative, and to help contain the cat hair that comes from looking out the window all day while I’m at work!

I was going to do 4 pattern repeats (cast on 103), with a border of 5 on each side, but that was eating too much yarn, and I pulled it out after about 12 rows. Bulky yarn on size 17s is really big stitches, and I don’t need this to be that big anyhow…

Mods:
Cast on 79, seed stitch 6 rows.
Start pattern, maintaining 5 seed sts each side…3 pattern repeats, 6 rows seed stitch.
Renamed to Diamonds and Seeds because I switched out the “pearl” borders for seed stitch.

Gauge - 2st/in.
