Knitted Circle Throw

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sts + 16 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in St st (k every rnd) on larger needle. 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

NOTES:

Throw is worked from the center-out. It is knit back and forth for an easy beginning, then worked circularly for the remainder. Change to circular needle when possible. Though the instructions may look daunting, beginning with Rnd 11 the pattern is one increase round followed by three knit rounds. The color changes are a bit irregular, and it's handy to have stitch counts, so each round is written out.

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.
