    Yesh, Right! I don't HAVE any "Awards & Honors" - so nominate me for something - I want one of those badge things to put here. I don't care what it is - make up your own award and give it to me. I'm not picky.

Great American Aran Afghan – Belanger Square

Posted by thedarwinexception on March 2, 2009


Square: Ginette Belanger

Material Used: 1.75 skeins KnitPicks Wool of the Andes – Dove Gray; Size 7 Knitting Needles; Stitch Markers

Time to Completion: 4 Days

Notes: This square used a little more yarn than I had expected, but it was extremely easy. There are 2 basic charts, but since the charts are not done in an even amount (one chart has 24 rows, the other only 4), you will need a system for keeping track of which row you are working on which chart. I used the high tech method of writing the rows on a piece of paper and crossing them off. Also, since there are 5 distinct “sections” you are knitting, it’s extremely helpful to use stitch markers to mark off each section,. I don’t see how you could complete the square otherwise. Unless you have a really good eye and a really good memory as to where each section begins and ends.

But, so far, out of the two completed squares, this one is definitely the easiest of the two, and a great place to start if you are just beginning the afghan.
