Finished Size: 40″ wide by 40″ long. Feel free to size this afghan up or down by making wider and longer panels. To make wider panels, use the Kingsize (46 needle) Addi Machine. If you do not have the Kingsize machine, you could use the Professional (22 needle) Addi Machine and add more panels to make each block wider.

You will need:

Addi Express Professional (22 needle) Knitting Machine Note: I used the Professional (22 needle) Addi, but you could use the Kingsize (46 needle) Addi if you like.

Hobby Lobby “I Love This Yarn”, 1 ball each of Sherbet Stripe, Mango, Turquoise, and Keylime (This yarn is #4 Worsted Weight. Each ball of Mango, Turquoise, or Keylime contains 355 yards of yarn because they are solid colors. 1 ball of Sherbet Stripe only contains 252 yards of yarn because it is printed.)

Yarn Needle (preferably metal)

Crochet Hook Size H (5.0 mm)

Small pair of Scissors


First, we make 16 flat panels on the Addi Express Professional Knitting Machine. Each panel should be 19 stitches wide and 20″ long.

Then, we sew the flat panels together with mattress stitch to make 4 blocks.

Finally, we sew the blocks together and add a border.
