5 1/2 Hour Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


3 V-sts + 4 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern with 1 strand each of A, B and C held together. 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


Throw is worked with 1 strand each of A, B and C held together.

With 1 strand each of A, B and C held together, ch 67.
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 2–39: Ch 3, turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 space across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch.
Fasten off.

Side Edging
From Right Side, with 1 strand each of A, B and C held together, work 1 row of single crochet evenly spaced along side edge of Throw.
Repeat on opposite side edge.
Weave in ends.

Wrap A, B and C around cardboard. Cut strands at one end. For each Fringe, hold 3 strands of each yarn (9 strands total) together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of Throw, forming a loop. Pull ends of Fringe through this loop and tighten. Make Fringe along both ends of Throw. Trim Fringe ends evenly.

5 1/2 Hour Throw Reviewed by June Wilson on 2014-01-26 *****
Great pattern. It works very easy. because of the size of the hook, don't need my glasses. i have made tons of these for gifts. Everyone loves them. I have several around my house.
