I just finished knitting a Textured Lap Robe that is a free pattern at Freepattern.com. It's a traditional sampler that's a knockout and so easy I actually did it without any whopping errors. Unlike the patten shown, I did it with two strands of Phentex Worsted Denim and one strand of Bernat Satin Coastal. I cast on 73 stitches and finished it as written. The pattern calls for 14 strands of fringe and I did 10. Looks better. The afghan drapes beautifully!
My computer skills are minimal but you can find it on this page:
Hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I did!
