completed (6 Black and 5 Scarlet).
NARROW STRIP (Make 1) . . . With Black, ch 38. 1st row: Work as for first row of Wide Strip (17 sps). Work in color pattern
exactly as for Wide Strip.
WEAVING . . . Place Afghan lengthwise on a curtain stretcherit will be easier to handle this way. However, it may be done
without the use of a curtain stretcher.
Cut 2 strands of Black each 80 inches long, thread these strands into a bodkin and weave in and out through first row of sps,
leaving enough yarn free at each end to make fringe. Cut 2 more strands of Black and weave through same row of sps, going
under rows that were passed over previously. Weave Black through next 7 rows the same way. Make 1 row of Yellow and 8 Black.
This completes 1 Black Section. Now make (3 rows of Scarlet, 1 row of Black) 3 times and 3 rows of Scarlet. This completes 1
Scarlet Section. Continue to work in pattern, alternating Scarlet and Black Sections until all sps have been filled.
Remove from curtain stretcher. Knot first 12 strands together to make a fringe. Make fringe, knotting every 12 strands across.
Complete other end to correspond. Trim ends evenly. Block to measurements.
