Fireside Jewel 6-Hour Fast-finish Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

GAUGE
4 stitches = 4 in. [10cm] in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side rows, purl on wrong side rows) with 4 strands of yarn held together. Due to the nature of the fabric when working with Speed Stix, gauge may vary throughout the knitting and is not crucial to this project.

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:

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.

AFGHAN
With 1 strand each of A, B, C and D held together, cast on 34 stitches.
Row 1 (Right Side): Knit.
Row 2: Purl. Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 54 in. [137 cm] from beginning. Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Fringe
Cut 68 strands of each color yarn each about 20 in. [52 cm] long. For each Fringe, hold one strand of each color (4 strands total) together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of Afghan, forming a loop. Pull ends of Fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Make one Fringe in each stitch along first and last rows of Afghan. Trim Fringe.

Fireside Jewel 6-Hour Fast-finish Throw Reviewed by Bonnie Sharpless on 2009-08-16 ****
I made this using the suggested colors, but I used a basket-weave pattern and put tassles on the corners instead of fringe on the edge. Very pretty.
