Summer Flower Baby Throw

Lion Brand« Cotton-Ease«

GAUGE:

1 Flower Motif = 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 in. (11 x 11 cm).

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:

Cl (cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, (yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

The Motifs may be joined ‘as you go’ or sewed tog after all Motifs have been crocheted. Choose whichever way of joining that you are more comfortable with!

To assemble the Afghan by sewing: After all Motifs have been crocheted, lay out Motifs on a flat surface, following the arrangement shown in the Assembly Diagram. At the places where the ch-spaces of two adjoining Motifs meet, sew the chs tog.

To assemble the Afghan by joining the Motifs as you crochet them: Crochet neighboring Motifs tog while working the last rnd of each Motif. Join the edges of adjoining Motifs tog by working ch-5-join instead of ch 5, and working ch-3-join instead of ch 3:
ch-5-join: Ch 2, sl st in the matching ch-5 sp of adjoining Flower Motif, ch 2.
ch-3-join: Ch 1, sl st in matching ch-3 sp of adjoining Flower Motif, ch 1.



FLOWER MOTIF (make 12 each with A, B, C, D, E, and F)
Ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 8 sc in ring; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, ch 3, Cl in next sc, ch 3, *sc in next sc, ch 3, Cl in next sc, ch 3; rep from * 2 more times; join with sl st in first sc – 4 sc, 8 ch-3 sps, and 4 clusters at end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, 5 sc in each ch-sp around; join with sl st in first sc – 40 sc at end of this rnd.
Rnd 4: Sl st in next sc, (sl st, ch 1, sc) in next sc (center sc of 5-sc group), ch 5, sk next 4 sc, *sc in next sc, ch 5, sk next 4 sc; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc – 8 sc, and 8 ch-5 sps at end of this rnd.
Rnd 5: Ch 1, *(4 sc, ch 5, 4 sc) in next ch-5 sp, (2 sc, ch 3, 2 sc) in next ch-5 sp; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc – 48 sc, 4 ch-3 sps, and 4 ch-5 sps at end of this rnd. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Arrange Flower Motifs as shown in Assembly Diagram. Join edges of Flower Motifs tog. Weave in ends.

Summer Flower Baby Throw Reviewed by JoAnn Clark on 2013-11-24 *****
I made this blanket for my baby niece for Christmas and I really liked how it came out. I'll probably make the blanket again, though next time I may edit the # of colors down from 6 to 3 and adjust the color pattern accordingly. Maybe it was just the colors I picked, but the 6 just seemed like overload.

I chose to join the motifs as I worked and I think that was the right call because the open nature of the motifs really didn't lend itself to sewing them together afterwards.
