Windowpane Afghan

I posted a photo on Facebook--this one in fact-- of my finished Windowpane Afghan. I started it a few years back but then things happened, other projects took precedence and it  got set aside...just another WIP--work in progress-- with no means of an end until I set to doing it.




Well, I finally did finish it and here it is, ready to be donated to some worthwhile charity. Still have not decided which one, but I am leaning toward the Annual Autism Awareness Bowl-a-thon which Justin loves to go to with this fellow autism buddies.

A request for the pattern from a  friend made me write out the instructions, so I thought I'd post it here in case others would like to try this fun and easy pattern too.

**Note: Work in back loops only. Each row is a different color, cut and finish off at the end of each row. For a smooth transition make the color change on the last stitch at the end of each row.

Pattern: With MC loosely chain 212.
Row #1 (Wrong side): Sc in back ridge of 2nd ch from hook and each chain across; 211 sc. Bind off. (In last stitch switch to CC-A)

Row#2 (Right side): With CC-A chain 3, dc in next 2 sc, ch1* skip next sc, dc in next 2 sc; repeat from* across to last 4 sc, skip next sc, dc in last 3 sc; finish off. 142 dc and 69 ch-1 sps. (In last stitch switch to MC)

Row #3: With MC ch 2, *sc in next 2 dc, working behind next ch-1 space tr in sc on row below, ch 1, repeat from * across to last 3 dc. Sc in last 3 dc. (In last stitch switch to CC-B)

Row #4: With CC-B repeat row#2. (In last stitch switch to MC)
Row #5: With MC *sc in next 2 dc, working behind next ch-1 space tr in tr on row below, ch 1, repeat from * across to last 3 dc. Sc in last 3 dc. (In last stitch switch to CC-C)

Row #6- 121: Repeat row #4 and #5, 58 times following the color sequence.


Fringe (Optional) Holding 3 strands each of MC and 3 of corresponding color, each 18 inches long, fold in half and attached at both short ends of each row.  

If you opt out of the fringe--which I almost did-- you could make a few rows of a favorite edging instead.
