Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 12 sts + 12 rows to crochet a throw that is about 36 inch x 36 inch (91-1/2 cm x 91-1/2 cm), not including the border. Remember 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 and rows to make a 4 inch (10 cm) square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Download the full template for the patterns for this project.
