Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 1 pattern rep (about 3-1/2 inch) and 7 rows (about 4 inch) in pattern to crochet a throw that measures approximately 43-1/2 inch x 54-1-/2 inch. 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 square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Notes: Throw is worked back and forth in rows. Color is changed every 3 rows following the Color Sequence. To change color, fasten off old color, turn piece and join new color in first st as instructed. A border is worked around the outside edge of completed Throw.
