Crocheted Fast-Finish Throw

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

Approx 1 hdc2tog = 1”, using 2 strands of yarn held together. TO INSURE PROPER SIZE, BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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:

Entire Afghan is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together.

HINTS:
1. Take care in setting up first 2 rows to establish pat.
2. To help avoid striping effect using multicolor yarns, start skein of each of 2 strands held together in a different color area.
3. To maintain st count, be sure to work end of row as written, working hdc2tog into 2nd to last and last sts and hdc into turning ch. Check work from time to time to be sure clusters are lining up and st count is maintained.

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.


CROCHET STITCH


Hdc2togYarn over hook, insert hook into st, draw up loop, yarn over hook, insert hook into next st and draw up loop, yarn over hook and draw through all loops on hook.


AFGHAN

With 2 strands of yarn held together, ch 43.
Row 1: Hdc2tog into 3rd ch from hook and next ch, *hdc2tog inserting hook into same ch as cluster just worked and into next ch*; rep from * to * across to last ch, 1 hdc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc2tog into first and 2nd sts, *hdc2tog inserting hook into same ch as cluster just worked and next st*, rep from * to * across, hdc into turning ch, turn. Rep Row 2 until Afghan is approx 43 (55)”. Do not fasten off, do not turn at end of last row, ch 1.
Edging: Work 1 row sc around entire Afghan working 3 sc into each corner. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Apply looped fringe at top and bottom edges, if desired.
Looped Fringe: With 2 strands of yarn held together, wind yarn 3 (4) times around an 8" wide piece of cardboard. Cut yarn ends attached to ball even with the fringe loops but do not cut bottom of fringe wrapped around cardboard. Holding top of fringe together, slide off cardboard. Using fingers or crochet hook, reach through sc edge st from back to front of Afghan and pull top of fringe through. Pull bottom of fringe through this loop. Rep this every 2nd or 3rd sc across top and bottom edges. To keep cut yarn ends from fraying, put small overhand knot into very end of these strands.

What an easy, yet beautiful throw. The directions are clear and the finished throw turned out perfectly.
