If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Do you start the second triangle at. the apex (where the first one ended,or at the bottom? Do you fasten off after the k3tog on the 1st triangle?

Hi kdhughes46, it is my understanding that you do fasten off after the k3tog on the 1st triangle, and then you pick up the stitches off of the diagonal part of the first triangle, and so you would start the second triangle off from the diagonal part, or the longest side, and work your way down to the opposite tip. However, I recommend contacting Lion Brand so they can confirm for you. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is a very interesting afghan pattern. Even though you have to seam the strips together, I like it better than other patterns where you make the blocks individually and then have to seam them all together. I like the purple shades in the picture but would probably combine them with colors other than gold and brown.

I am trying to make this but I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or if the pattern is wrong. In the first triangle it says to purl the rows which creates a stockinette effect. The picture of the finished afghan doesn't look like that to me. Could someone please tell me if I am doing this wrong. I want mine to look like the picture. Thanks.

what you are doing is incorrect-according to the pattern directions this is all knit-there are no purl rows.

Do you have the pattern for Mountain Mist Afghan in crochet?
