Sandcastle Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice® - Vanna's Glamour®


3 V-sts = 4 in. (10 cm), worked with 1 strand each of A, B and C held tog.

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


Throw is worked with 1 strand each of A, B and C held tog.

With 1 strand each of A, B and C held tog, ch 97.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 sp of each V-st across, dc in top of turning ch.
Rep Row 2 until piece measures 50 in. (127 cm) from beg.
Fasten off.

Sandcastle Throw Reviewed by Amber Teall on 2013-01-01 *****
I made this Afghan as a bridal shower gift & she loved it! It worked up very quickly. I used the pattern as described and it was heavier than I thought it would be. For someone who is more warm blooded, I would recommend using only 2 strands.
