Garter ridges form the design motifs and background. From the side, the afghan looks like irregularly knit stripes - from top and bottom, the stars, stripes and hearts appear like magic!

Note on yardage: pattern calls for 6 skeins white, 6 skeins red and 5 skeins navy. Thus 810 yds of red and white each, 675 yds navy.
