Burridge Lake Aran Afghan

Burridge Lake Aran AfghanThe Burridge Lake Aran Afghan is designed to be a classic Aran afghan, and perfectly symmetrical. The center panel is symmetrical within itself, and the two side panels are mirror images of each other.
The entire afghan is covered in braids and twists, and exposes the knitter to a number of different braids, bobbles and stitches, and minimizes the use of the (boring) stockinette/reverse stockinette stitch. Additionally, the side panels uses the trinity stitch, where the main work is on the wrong side rows, to keep the knitter’s interest on both right and wrong side rows.
