This afghan was machine knit on a chunky machine. The centre panel (pink one towards the left) is done in thread lace. I just did very simple cables on the cream coloured panels and on the other panels I used a crochet hook to chain up the centre. The panels are joined with a crochet hook pulling two loops from one panel through two loops of another panel. You make those loops by leaving one needle

out of work next to the edge stitch when knitting the panel, and when casting off each panel you do not cast off the outside stitches. That way you can undo them to join the panels.)
