How To Fold A Round Afghan


This afghan was an experiment. A close look will reveal the alternating 6 "points" are a different width. I started with 6 points and added the remaining 6 points on about the 8th row.  It does not have enough definition of the width difference to please me but is still a lovely soft afghan and I shall not "frog" it as I am sure it will find a wonderful loving home.

As for how to fold a round afghan, ripple or otherwise, simple for some perhaps a dilemma for others. I have been asked many times, just how do you fold those round type afghans into a square? Well, lets face it, since it is round turning it into a square has to be carefully engineered and can be rather difficult but if you are willing to settle for "squarish" follow the steps below.
