Landscape Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

12 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over hdc worked in back loops only (Block 6).
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
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.

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

Leaving a loop of yarn in the front, bring working yarn to back of work. Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

1. Individual Blocks are crocheted, then sewn together following the Assembly Diagram.
2. Any small differences in sizes of Blocks can be eased in when sewing Blocks together.

Really excellent throw. I made it using baby weight yarn and in pastel colours for my friend's baby. It was time consuming but because of the varied blocks never boring. I also left out the road and river.

It might be because of the different weight yarn, but the chain lengths were deceiving. Because of the varied stitches, I would trust to your own judgement on how long the block should be rather than go by the number of chain stitches.
