I had been searching for an afghan pattern that takes advantage of Kureyon’s long color runs. This block pattern is based on Barbara G. Walker’s Short-Row Stripes square in her Learn to Knit Afghan book. The original idea was to knit a square occasionally as I came across new colors of Kureyon, finishing the afghan in time to send it to college with my daughter, who is also a knitter and who loves Kureyon. Unable to stop once I began, she instead received it for her 15th birthday.
One size: Version 1 (multicolored squares): 106.5 by 162.5 cm; Version 2 (knit in one piece): 124.5 by 172.5 cm
Gauge: 18 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm in stockinette stitch (not crucial)

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
