Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
It measures 54 x 66 inches and uses Dawn Sayelle acrylic yarn, discontinued but Red Heart Super Saver Economy Yarn is a good substitute and it comes in lots of colors.
The Dawn Sayelle yarn came in 4 ounce skeins that totaled 258 yards so you’d need about 8 skeins of one color and about 7 skeins of the other in the Red Heart Super Saver yarn which is 7 ounces and 364 yards per skein.
Another good substitute yarn is Spinrite Caron One Pound. It’s a weight category of 4 and 100% Acrylic similar to the Dawn Sayelle. You’d need less skeins of this yarn since it comes in 16 ounce skeins and has a length of 453 yards.
The pattern afghan is made with Light Jade and Turquoise colors. Straight knitting needles size #11 are used with a Gauge of 16-stitch strip measures 5 inches.
This handsome afghan is fascinating to knit in two of your favorite colors, or the two given in directions. You’ll find that this “Show-Piece” serves a practical purpose, too — an extra cover when unexpected guests stay over nite, as well as a coverlet when taking “forty-winks”.
This is a mail order pattern you’d send a way for, usually for sale in a newspaper or magazine. There is no date or company name on the pattern. It is folded into thirds so in order to scan the whole thing I had to make it several pages. The pattern also includes photographs of the stitches.
The pattern is in PDF format so to read it you’ll need the Adobe Reader software on your computer. Most computers come with it, but it is free and can be found here.
