wow, that is quite the afghan! It's going to be a beautiful gift, I know they will love it.


What kind of cast on did you do? When i try to cast onto circulars my stitches get all messed up so I know my cast on wasn't correct. :(

Angie, psso is Pass Slipped Stitch Over, you decrease by passing the stitch you just slipped over the next stitch.

I did the long-tail cast on, it's the one I know best and it makes a neat edge.

Hah! I never measure out the right amount of yarn for my long-tail cast ons. I would never use any other cast on method unless I was doing some lace, but I almost always end up starting over when I cast on.
