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 Yarnspirations.com 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.
