In this nine-patch afghan, reminiscent of an antique Amish quilt, navy blue, ruby red, and olive green provide a striking contrast to the softer, more weathered-looking shades of gray, plum, oatmeal, salmon, pale pink, and yellow. The knitting of this afghan is especially simple because it is constructed of garter-stitch squares; the finishing is also easy, but requires close attention to detail to achieve strong, even seams that will last at least a few generations.

Yarn weight: #3 - Light
Gauge: 19 sts and 38 rows (including BO row) = 3 3/4" (9.5 cm) in garter st (diagonal measurement about 5" [12.5 cm]).
