I have knitted and crocheted many afghans over the years but have not made one in quite a while. My family and I really enjoy them, and most are beginning to look a bit “worn” to say the least! With the holidays approaching, I want to knit a new one, one that is quick and easy but that has an interesting design. I found a pattern that I really like that totally fits what I’ve been looking for, Quick Knit Basketweave Afghan Knit Pattern.
This quick, easy and beautiful afghan is knit by holding together two strands of knitting worsted yarn and using size 17 (US) circular knitting needles. With the large needles and two strands of yarn, it will be quick. And although it looks complicated, it is an easy pattern – my favorite kind to knit while I’m watching tv! And it is available as a digital download! Wow! The perfect new project for me!
