Trellis and Tassels Knit Afghan

This blanket is both cozy and stylish. Learn how to knit the Trellis & Tassels Knit Afghan, featured in the February 2017 Lookbook from Yarnspirations.  Thanks to for sponsoring this tutorial and providing the pattern and yarn.

The trellis stitch makes a beautiful afghan.  Even if you just did that you’d have a perfect cuddle blanket for watching a movie on a chilly winter evening.  But you’ll seriously take it to the next level when you add the contrast color on top with a slipped stitch technique and mega tassels for a style that really turns heads!

Use this technique for other items as well!  How about some slipped stitch stripes down your scarf?  Or just a couple for a pop of colorful detail on a hat.  This technique can be used anywhere your imagination takes you.

This complete KAL (Knit Along) tutorial takes you all the way through the project from cast on to bind off.  I even teach you how to add the tassels and work a slip stitch stripe on the front of your afghan.

Let’s knit the Trellis and Tassels Knit Afghan together!
