5 1/2 Hour Throw

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


2 V-sts + 3 1/2 rows = 5 in. (12.5 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Starting at lower edge, ch 61.
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 – 19 V-sts and 1 dc on each end.
Rows 2–40: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 sp across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch.
Fasten off.
Join yarn in any corner of Throw.
Edging Row: Ch 1, single crochet evenly spaced along long edge of Throw. Fasten off. Rep edging along other long edge.
Weave in ends.
For each Fringe cut 9 strands of yarn approximately 22 in. (56 cm) long. Hold the strands 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. Pull to tighten. Make Fringe evenly spaced along top and lower edges of Throw. Trim Fringe evenly.

ch(s) = chain(s) ch-space = space previously made
