Willow Creek Throw

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

8 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

Willow Creek Throw Reviewed by Deidre A Wright on 2011-12-20 ****
I made this throw for a friend. The pattern is easy to follow. As written, I felt the throw was a little small. I probably should have used size 15 needles. I added an extra panel and two rows of single crochet to each side to help with the curling. Suggest purchasing additional yarn and adding more panels and/or making the panels longer. The throw is really thick and will definitely keep you warm.
