Big Stripes Small Throw

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice® - Vanna's Choice® Baby

GAUGE:

14 dc = 4 in. (10 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

FIRST STRIP
With A, ch 144.
Note: On Row 1, you will work a dc in the 4th ch from your hook.
The first 3 chains count as the first dc.
The dc that you make into the 4th ch from your hook is the second dc.
This leaves 140 more ch.
Work a dc in each of these 140 chs to make a total of 142 dc when Row 1 is complete.

Row 1 (RS): Dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as dc) and in each ch across - 142 dc.
Rows 2-4: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, dc in each st across.
Row 5: Ch 3, turn, dc in next 3 sts, *ch 2, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts; rep from * across.
Rows 6-9: Rep Row 2.
Fasten off.

Note: The Second-Seventh Strips are worked the same as the First Strip through Row 9.
When you finish working Row 9 of the Second-Seventh Strips, you will join each to the previous strip by working a Joining Row.

SECOND STRIP
With B, ch 144.
Rows 1-9: Work same as Rows 1-9 of First Strip.
At the end of Row 9, do not fasten off.
Note: The Joining Row (instructions below) will form a zigzag between two strips, joining them together.
You will be joining the 142 sts on the last row worked to the foundation row of the previous strip.

With RS facing, place First Strip above Second Strip.
Next (Joining) Row: Sl st in first st of Second Strip, ch 1, sl st in first foundation ch of First Strip, ch 2, sk next st of Second Strip, sl st in next st of Second Strip, ch 2, sk next 2 sts of First Strip, sl st in next st of First Strip, *ch 2, sk next 2 sts of Second Strip, sl st in next st of Second Strip, ch 2, sk next 2 sts of First Strip, sl st in next st of First Strip, continue to work back and forth between the 2 strips to join, end with ch 1, sl st in last st of Second Strip.
Fasten off.

THIRD STRIP
With C, work as for Second Strip.
At end of Row 9, work Joining Row between Third Strip and Second Strip.

FOURTH-SEVENTH STRIPS
With D, E, F and G, work as for Second Strip, working Joining Row at the end of Row 9.

FINISHING
Edging

With RS facing, join C with sl st in any corner of Throw. Work sc evenly spaced around outside edge, working 3 sc in each corner; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Big Stripes Small Throw Reviewed by kunni biener on 2013-07-09 *****
I have made 3 or 4 of these, love them for a toddler blanket, a gift for the sibling to go with a baby blanket. Easy to make, easy to wash.
