Free Pattern Friday: Comfy Afghan
Free Pattern Friday: Presented by Leisure Arts

Hello Knit Fan!

Comfy Afghan
A basket weave pattern gives timeless appeal to this comfy knit wrap. The afghan is quick to make because you knit it with jumbo needles while holding two strands of medium weight yarn together.
