Best Easy Knit Afghan Ever!
He everyone,
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!
Nancy

Very nice, bet it is really pretty in the yarns that you chose. AND, thanks for directing me to a site I didn't know about.

I just spent about ten minutes looking at that site. Didn't even know that I needed a knitted lamp shade cover until I saw their pattern for one. Thanks again, it will be my next non-sock project.
