I've knitted several Aran Afghans and all you need to make them is a knitting book that contains Aran stitches...cables, etc. Then create your own from blocks of different stitches....I've also made them in long strips...top to bottom so that I didn't have to drag the whole thing around...only the one strip I was working on...when all the strips are done, sew them together...or, you can make sideways strips, OR blocks. It's fun to choose your OWN patterns and create your OWN look

Sandra, thanks for the tip. That's a great idea.
I like the block idea cause it's easier to carry
with me.
Have A Great Day!

I really like making my own patterns, etc, instead of using someone else's...it's a great way, too, to preview different stitches...those you like, you can repeat, those you don't can be single blocks...the whole thing can be a 'sampler' of Aran stitches/cables/bobbles, etc.
