Cozy Luxe Baby Throw

Lion Brand® Baby's First®

GAUGE:

11 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Lace Pattern and Seed st.

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:

sk2p slip 1 st as if to knit, knit 2 sts together, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit)-slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time to right needle, insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together - 1 st decreased.

 

PATTERN STITCHES
Seed St (over an odd number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1, rep from *, end k1.
Row 2: K the purl sts and p the knit sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

 

Lace Pattern (multipe of 12 sts + 1)
Row 1:
K1, * yo, ssk, k7, k2tog, yo, k1; repeat from * across.
Row 2 and all WS rows: Purl.
Row 3: K1, * k1, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo, k2; rep from * across.
Row 5: K1, * (yo, ssk) twice, k3, (k2tog, yo) twice, k1; rep from * across.
Row 7: K1, * k1, (yo, ssk) twice, k1, (k2tog, yo) twice, k2; rep from * across.
Row 9: K1, * (yo, ssk) twice, yo, sk2p, yo, (k2tog, yo) twice, k1; rep from * across.
Row 11: K1, * k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k4; rep from * across.

Row 20: Purl.
Rep Rows 1-20 for Lace Pattern.

NOTES:

1. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
2. Lace Pattern is a multiple of 12 sts + 1 and is worked over center 85 sts of the Afghan. Place a marker after every 12-st rep of Lace Pattern and count your sts after every row to be sure you have 12 sts in every rep. On Row 19 of the Lace Pattern, the pattern rep will shift one st to the right, you will need to move your markers on this row, then move markers back one st to the left to begin Row 1 of the Lace Pattern.


AFGHAN
Cast on 91 sts.
Rows 1-4: Work in Seed st.
Row 5: Work in Seed st as established over first 3 sts, p to last 3 sts, work in Seed st to end of row.
Row 6: Work 3 sts in Seed st as established, work Row 1 of Lace Pattern over next 85 sts, placing a marker after every 12-st rep of Lace Pattern, work last 3 sts in Seed st as established.
Continue as established, keeping first and last 3 sts in Seed st and working Lace Pattern over center 85 sts, until Rows 1-20 of Lace Pattern have been worked a total of 8 times. Work 4 rows in Seed st. Bind off.
FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Cozy Luxe Baby Throw Reviewed by Sherie Marten on 2014-04-02 *****
I made two of these for new grandkids and they were fun to make. Loved the yarn. Parents of both Man and Vivienne used them all the time.
