Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked using the wavelength stitch. You may refer to the stitch video tutorial if you are struggling with the written instructions.

The wavelength stitch pattern is very versatile and will accommodate substitutions in yarn. However, this pattern is written for Bernat Blanket yarn, a bulky weight yarn, and therefore substitutions must also be a bulky weight yarn. If you choose to use a lighter weight yarn, the gauge will be smaller and your finished afghan will also be smaller.
