Wanted: Simple Afghan Pattern

I’ve been googling all morning looking for afghan patterns but can’t find a simple one. Oh sure, I find really complex ones I have no hope of knitting right now (my skill level is novice) but someday hope to but can’t seem to find any simple ones.

Anyone?

What I want to knit is a simple afghan for Wolf’s niece’s wedding.

    You might try this book…

    The reason it is nice is that the patterns aren’t too challenging but even better the large needle size makes the afghan a very quick knit over all.

    You could just knit squares, making sure they are all the same size, and then sew them together.

    I raid the library for knitting books all the time. It’s a great source.

    I thought of that, Allie, but still don’t understand the mechanics of attaching two squares together.

    We do have a public library here in town but it’s really the primary school’s. The way it works is like this: we have about 1000 people in town thus our town doesn’t have a lot of money. Only one library could be built with the money available at the time so the town chose to build a library for the only school in town: a primary school.

    There’s a section for adults but it’s really small. I don’t know how the inter-library loan thing works in town, if it does at all. Being part of the inter-library community costs money and our town may not have the ca$h to join.

    Thus, our library isn’t much of a resource for adults which is really too bad.
