    Use a gauge of Rounds 1 -4 of Plain Square (about 5 inch) and Circle Square (about 4-3/4 inch) to crochet a throw that measures approximately 50 inch x 50 inch. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.

    Assembly:
    Layout the squares in a saw tooth pattern, alternating a circle square with a plain square.
    Place the colors in desired manner.
    With the right sides up and using color Warm Brown join the squares by abutting the squares next to each other and running the yarn through both loops of each square. This will form a raised seam that adds an interesting design element. It is easiest to join the squares into strips, and then join the strips together.
