Opulent Neutral Throw

Lion Brand« Homespun® - Chenille Thick & Quick® - Jiffy® - Wool-Ease® - Wool-Ease« Chunky

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Pattern. 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 swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Color Sequence
Work 4 rows for each stripe
Stripe 1: A and H
Stripe 2: D and I
Stripe 3: F and L
Stripe 4: B and J
Stripe 5: E and K
Stripe 6: C and H
Stripe 7: D and I
Stripe 8: Two strands of G
Stripe 9: C and J
Stripe 10: F and L

NOTES:

Work with 2 strands of yarns held together in pattern stitch sequence.

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.

Row 1 (RS): K 1, *yo, k 6, (slip 2 tog as if to knit, k 1, p2sso),k 6, yo, k 1; repeat from * across.

Row 4:Purl

PATTERN 2

THROW


Beginning with Color Stripe 1, cast on 97 sts and knit 3 rows. With Color Stripe 2, begin Pattern 1. Continue working in Color Stripe sequence alternating Pattern 1 and Pattern 2. Work Color Sequence 4 times. Knit 3 rows with Color Stripe 1. Bind off all sts loosely.

FRINGE

With all yarns, cut strands 18" long. Mix and match 18 strands for each fringe and attach to tip and base of each point at either end of throw – 26 total.

Opulent Neutral Throw Reviewed by Natalie Griffeth on 2010-04-26 ****
It is beautiful, and it knits up in less than a month and I am a busy mom of 3. I made it for a wedding gift. I am now making one for my mother in a different color palette. I only gave it 4 stars because there are whole skeins of yarn leftover. I will be able to use them in my mom's blanket, but if you only plan on making 1, you will overspend on the yarn. I did do some substituting because of discontinued colors/varieties, you will notice mine has more gray because instead of Rococo, I used Granite for contrast. I paid close attention to yards and weight when substitutions were made with different brands for the chenille. The photos were taken when it was almost done. I plan on utilizing some leftover yarn for the fringe, but I am saving my unopened leftover skeins/balls for my next project. Finished size w/o fringe is 62" x 46".
