Blockbuster Afghan


GAUGE:

16 sts + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

NOTES:

1. Pick up and bind off stitches on RS rows unless indicated otherwise.
2. Twist yarns around each other when changing colors to prevent holes.
3. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows, as if working on straight needles.
