Class description:

If you like a bit of a challenge you will like Fisherman knit afghans. There are basically 3 patterns within this design. I have made some changes so it can be knit in strips instead of 48 squares. You can choose the length and width you want. It could be a lapgan, single or double bed size or a couch throw. When I first made this pattern, I used up 3 shades of blue, yellow, brown and burnt orange from my stash. My Mom was around to crochet the squares together, but now I do it in strips since I don’t like sewing together very much.


Skills needed:

Know how to knit, pearl, cast on, bind off. I will teach the trinity, bobble, twist, right twist, and left twist,and cable front and back stitches. My plan is to teach the individual stitches  and let you practice each before beginning the afghan.
