5 1/2 Hour Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

3 V-sts + 4 rows = 8 in. (20.3 cm) with 4 strands of yarn held together.

NOTES:

Throw is worked with 1 strand of each color yarn (4 strands total) held together.

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.


THROW
With 1 strand each of A, B, C, and D held together, ch 47.
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in same ch (V-st made), *sk 2 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch (V-st made); repeat from * to last 2 ch, sk 1 ch, dc in last ch.
Rows 2–25: Ch 3, turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 space across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch.
Fasten off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Side Edging
From right side, join 1 strand of each yarn with slip stitch at one end of long side. Work 1 row of single crochet evenly spaced along (long) side edge of Throw. Repeat on opposite side edge.

Fringe
Cut 15 in. (38 cm) lengths of each color yarn. For each fringe, hold 2 strands of each color yarn (8 strands total) together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop and tighten. Make fringe in bottom of each V-st at bottom edge; make fringe in center of each V-st at top edge. Make fringe at corners on both ends of Throw. Trim fringe ends evenly, knotting ends to keep yarn from fraying.

5 1/2 Hour Throw Reviewed by Kerrie Turner on 2013-07-08 *****
I have made 4 of these blankets with the speed hook and they are always well recieved. I will say that when the "holiday homespun" comes out, I always stock up and make Christmas gifts galore! They turn out great in those colors.
awesome pattern and really quick to do. It is true that it gets heavy, but it is manageable.
