Description

Instructions are for a very easy and visually striking lap robe of 102 x 122 cm or full-sized afghan of 127 x 173 cm. The lap robe size is suitable for a crib blanket. The main body of the blanket is knitted in one piece. The vertical stripes are added after the main body of the afghan is knitted. A border of bobbles is added to give it a finished look. The pattern includes both written instructions and charts. Skills needed are the following: knit stitch, purl stitch, single-crochet stitch. The sample in the photo was made for a man, but heathered yarns or less contrasting colors would produce a much more subtle look. The sample was made up in an acrylic (Knit Picks Brava Worsted) for wash-ability, but this pattern is suitable for any worsted weight yarn. Several suitable alternate yarns are suggested.
