This GrannyGhan Afghan was started because I was given a big bag of afghan yarn, mostly red heart supersaver so I am making a vertical granny stripped afghan.
I started this on September 10th, 2012 and am currently working on. I will add progress shots as I progress.
Queen Size. My starting width is 85″ and I was thinking about working 60-65″ long. If you are looking at making this a different size, this pattern is worked in multiples of 3, adding +1 for your ch 1.
1 cluster stitch = 1″ wide

cl st = cluster stitch (3 dc in same st)
Notes: **Turn work after each row**
Ch 251, **Working in the back ridge of the chain** sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: ch 3, dc in beg sc, (sk 2 sc, cl st in next sc) across, 2 dc in last sc.
Row 3: ch 3, (cl st in spaces created by cl st’s of previous row) across, dc in last st of row, fasten off.
Row 4: Joining in new colour in last dc of prev row (tie a knot with the two tails to secure them), ch 3, dc in same sp , (cl st in spaces created by cl st’s of previous row) across, 2 dc in last sp of row.
Row 5+: repeat rows 3 & 4 consecutively until work measured desired length.
When the afghan gets to the desired length I plan on finishing with the last two rows.
Row 6: ch 1. sc in each st across.
Row 7: sl st in each sc across **Make sure to loosely sl st so that you don’t make your corners pucker!**
As for sewing in ends.. I am not sure yet.. I am thinking maybe little tassels at the foot?
