Free knitting pattern for 6 Hour Afghan and more weekend knitting patterns

6-Hour Afghan

This afghan pattern by Lion Brand is fast because it uses 4 strands of yarn knit together on size 50 (25mm) needles. The four strands gives you an opportunity to really play with color. It has a lot of good reviews but it may take you longer if you need to get comfortable with giant needles and four strands. I’d personally use circular needles. It seems like straight needles would be very awkward. 34 x 54 in. [86.5 x 137 cm], not including fringe
