WEAVING ... Place Afghan lengthwise on a curtain stretcher—it will be
easier to handle this way. However, it may be done without the use of a
curtain stretcher.

Cut 2 strands of Black each 80 inches long, thread these strands into a
bodkin and weave in and out through first row of sps, leaving enough
yarn free at each end to make fringe. Cut 2 more strands of Black and
weave through same row of sps, going under rows that were passed over
previously. Weave Black through next 7 rows the same way. Make 1 row of
Yellow and 8 Black. This completes 1 Black Section. Now make (3 rows of
Scarlet, 1 row of Black) 3 times and 3 rows of Scarlet. This completes 1
Scarlet Section. Continue to work in pattern, alternating Scarlet and
Black Sections until all sps have been filled.

Remove from curtain stretcher. Knot first 12 strands together to make a
fringe. Make fringe, knotting every 12 strands across. Complete other
end to correspond. Trim ends evenly. Block to measurements.
