Pennsylvania Dutch Afghan Free Knitting Pattern
This Pennsylvania Dutch Knitted Afghan (shown on the left) is from American Thread Dawn Book 181 - Afghans and Pillows. This is vintage 1960s. It's a lovely afghan that builds upon the classic Pennsylvania Dutch with a central motif leaf design. This is surrounded by varying borders. It is knit in strips that are joined together to from the 54 x 72 inch afghan. It has a medium length row of fringe all the way around
Although worked in just one color, the texture and dimension here give it a tone on tone feel. If you'd like to give it a try, I've listed in as a Free Download in my shop.
Happy Knitting, and thanks for dropping by,
