Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Vanna's Choice Baby Bello Throw
A colorful throw is a great addition to your home décor!
- Time:3 hours
1Use a gauge of 1 ripple (about 2-1/2 inch) to crochet a throw that measures approximately 34 inch x 42 inch. 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. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere.
Special stitches and abbreviations:
sc2tog (sc decrease) = Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.
This project is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it's important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
Work over yarn ends of old color or weave in ends as you work.
