Crochet Sampler Throw

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

1 Square = about 9 x 9 in. (23 x 23 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:

Note: Clusters and dc4tog are worked similarly, but take note that a cluster is worked into a single st, a dc4tog is worked over 4 sts.
CL (cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated ch-sp and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook in same ch-sp and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
dc4tog (dc 4 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) 4 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
Popcorn Work 5 dc into indicated st, drop loop from hook, insert hook in first dc of 5-dc group just made, pick up dropped loop and draw it through. When working the following row, push the Popcorn to the right side of the fabric.
Note: On RS rows, insert hook from front to back in first dc of 5-dc group. On WS rows, insert hook from back to front in first dc of 5-dc group.

1. Twenty five Squares are crocheted, then sewn together following Assembly Diagram.

Crochet Sampler Throw Reviewed by lisa ohara on 2012-02-21 ****
I made this throw in just a few days. I used the colors that were called for in the pattern. The only problem I had was with the zig zag, I just couldn't get it!So I made more of the other stitches. Love it!
