This afghan is from Eileen Montgomery's freebies, designed by Anne Alexander. Originally designed for the standard machine this one was knit on my Brother Bulky 260. After knitting the first one it became apparent that the needle set up should be L51-R52 to have an edge stitch on each side that will always knit and the side borders will better match the vertical honeycomb within the blanket. Midwest Collaborative was given many skeins of Caron One Pound for the group knit-in for Bundles of Love. The pink version shown has 10 rows of the honeycomb bottom and top border, which I think compliments the side borders, and 192 rows of the design. A third afghan has been knit with the same needle set up and borders, but with 224 rows of the design.
Tension 9. Thanks to all who have knit this and posted beforehand.

I love this pattern! Use it a lot for baby Christening blankets. Yours is beautiful!
I have a Brother 260 and I would like to know where to find this free Tuck pattern. Can the solid tuck section be used for a complete baby blanket?
Absolutely gorgeous afghan!

Lovely!!! Many thanks for the details of the explanations. Will be very helpful. Little boy on the way for my daughter and her husband...
That's a great pattern for edges that won't curl. Yours came out beautifully.
That is such a nice pattern.
