Simple Throw

Lion Brand« Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Alpaca Blend

GAUGE:

13 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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

SQUARE (make 4; 2 each with A and B)

Cast on 63 sts.
Rows 1 and 2: Knit.
Row 3 (RS): Knit.
Row 4 (WS): K6, p to last 6 sts, k6.
Rep Rows 3 and 4 until piece measures about 18 3/4 in. (47.5 cm) from beg, end with a RS row. Note: End with a RS row means that the last row you work should be a RS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a WS row.
Last 2 Rows: Knit.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Sew cast-on edge of one Square A to bound-off edge of one Square B, then sew cast-on edge of remaining Square B to bound-off edge of remaining Square A, to make 2 strips. Sew strips together to make Throw.
Weave in ends.

Simple Throw Reviewed by Dena Sigman on 2013-04-07 **
I am only two squares into this project and already seeing many problems. In order for this to be a decent size for adults, I will have to knit more panels than it calls for. The picture makes it look like it will work with 4 but I can promise you it won't. I started with a different yarn immediately because I knew Martha Stewart was too overpriced. It has been a very easy pattern though, which is good since I am a beginner knitter. Other posters are right about the edges but I think I will be able to make this work in the end. I picked this pattern because I thought it would knit up quick based on the picture and now I have a wedding gift in the works that might not be ready in time.
