I had to make another afghan for the other grand daughter of a friend of mine. The first girl liked black and cream. This girl likes black and white. The pattern is from Michael Beckers book Passap Instant Afghans Book 4.
I have made this before but I thought I would post this since I see a lot of people asking what tensions to start with on the passap.
I used two strands of 2/24. I don’t like the racking cast on. I did a circular cast on. First row N/N 3, CX/CX 4, N/N 5/4…
Main tension is 5/4… I had all needles in work except the last one on the back bed on the right. Both end needles are on the front bed.
Tension Mast 1-5, Tension Mast 2-6
When programming the console, when it asks position I put in 1-
The pattern is 179 stitches and this will center it. I finished this afghan in one hour and got a wonderful work out! Felt like I was having a ten minute hot flash. 🙂
I used Michael Becker’s cast off but I took off on waste yarn circular so I would not have to bend over the machine. I then sat and latch tooled only the front bed stitches. Removed waste yarn and finished.This has not been blocked yet.
