Lafayette Square Throw

Lion Brand« Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton - Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

11 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 1 strand each of A and D 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Seed Stitch (over an odd number of sts)
Row 1 (RS):
K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end.
Rep Row 1 for Seed St

NOTES:

1. Throw is worked with 1 strand of A, B, or C held tog with 1 strand of D, E, or F throughout.
2. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of st. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

STRIPE SEQUENCE
Work 8 rows with 1 strand each of A and E held tog, 8 rows with 1 strand each of A and D held tog, 8 rows with 1 strand each of B and D held tog, 8 rows with 1 strand each of B and F held tog, 8 rows with 1 strand each of C and F held tog, and 8 rows with 1 strand each of C and E held tog.

THROW
With 1 strand each of A and D held tog, cast on 147 sts. Work in Seed St for 8 rows. Cut D, change to E. Continue with 1 strand each of A and E held tog.
Next Row (RS): Work Seed St over first 7 sts, k across to last 7 sts, work Seed St to end.
Next Row (WS): Work Seed St over first 7 sts, p across to last 7 sts, work Seed St to end.
Continue as established, working first and last 7 sts in Seed St, remaining sts in St st (k on RS, p on WS), and following Stripe Sequence. Work until 4 reps of Stripe Sequence have been completed. Change to 1 strand each of A and D. Work in Seed St for 8 rows. Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Lafayette Square Throw Reviewed by Sylvie Tourigny on 2011-08-21 ***
I agree with the other two comments. My step-daughter has made me one twice the size in the colours of my choice, in bamboo she bought at a store closing.
