Moose Lace Afghan
HeartStrings knitting pattern #N37
This attractive, practical afghan is an example of "moose lace", i.e. lace knitted in a heavier yarn than usual. The lace makes this afghan lighter in weight for its size, yet pleasingly warm and snuggly.
Sizing: 40" by 48" or size desired (width can be adjusted in multiples of 10 stitches; length can be adjusted in repeats of 16 rows)
Yarn: 900 yards worsted weight
Suggested needles: US 8 (5 mm)
Stitch instructions: charted and written
Construction: knitted flat in one piece from end to end
Skill level: advanced beginner

Another example of Moose Lace, although larger and more involved than this Moose Lace Afghan, is the HeartStrings #A88 Lacie Blankie. Be sure to check it out, too.
You might be interested also in seeing a couple of smaller moose lace projects (hint: these make quick knits for sensational gifts) – #H24 Coronet Collaret and #H85 Rock Star Choker.
