View Full Version : Cotton Knit Afghan Pattern Search

11-10-2006, 12:44 AM
I'm new to this forum. I am desperately searching for a pattern I used about a year ago using 2 strands of cotton yarn for an afghan that is knit on large (maybe size 13-15) needles. The pattern is a simple one (a sort of basket weave look) that is K3, P3. It is driving me crazy that I cannot find the original pattern. Can anyone help me? I've gone through every book I own. Thanks![/u]

I don't know of one, but if you can find the basketweave you want you can probably just use cotton.

Here's a few places to look.

Knitting Pattern Central - afghans (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/afghans.php)
Basketweave afghan (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/afghans/nancysafghan.htm)

Or if you have a stitch library you could just come up with your own pattern. There is a basketweave in this list.

:shrug: Thanks for your suggestions. I just spent over an hour looking on the net for the pattern. The basic basket weave is close. I CAN duplicate the pattern. What's driving me nuts now is WHERE IN THE WORLD I found it in the first place. I have dug through my patterns a dozen times. I remember having to piece together the fragments of my yarn towards the end because I lengthened it for my husband. So many people have commented on how warm it is (cotton) so I was thinking about knitting one for those who commented. This is one of those little things in life that can drive one batty! Thanks for your help. I appreciate the time you took.
