Bernat Blanket Tad O'Plaid Throw

You’ll want to cuddle up under this stylish throw all winter long. Crochet this fun plaid piece and curl up with some hot cocoa!

Use a gauge of 9 sts and 5 rows (4") in mesh pattern to crochet a throw that measures approximately 52" square. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your gauge swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
