Slip Stitch Sampler Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in slip st patterns.

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:

RT (Right Twist) K2tog and leave on left needle, then with right needle, go between the 2 sts and k the first st again.
LT (Left Twist) Knit 2nd st on left needle through the back loop and leave on left needle. Then knit both the first and 2nd sts together through the back loop.

NOTES:

1. Throw is made from 6 Squares. All the Squares are worked the same, only the color combinations differ.
2. Each Square is worked in a log-cabin fashion; beg with a center square, then picking up sts for each 'Log'. Different slip st patterns are used for the center square and for each 'Log'.
3. Slip st patterns are worked with 2 colors. In each row, one of the colors is knit while the second color is slipped.
4. When slipping sts, with yarn in front (wyif) refers to the side of the work facing you as you work the row; with yarn in back (wyib) refers to the side of the work that is away from you as you work the row.
5. Completed squares are sewn together, following diagram, to make Throw.
6. You may wish to weave in the ends of each square as you complete it.
7. You may wish to line the Throw.

Slip Stitch Sampler Throw Reviewed by Pat Young on 2013-12-01 *****
I made this BEFORE the corrections were imposed. I would rate this without the corrections a one star because of the pattern errors. But visually it is a 5 star and if the pattern is now corrected it would be stunning. Now I know why some of my blocks were not accurate-- This throw is beautiful anyway-- I was able to 'doctor' the joinings to make it acceptable but given the amount of time and expense involved, I think this pattern should have been better proofed before it was posted for use. It certainly was not up to my normal knitting-- Not something I would give as a gift but certainly usable in my own home. I did line the back to finish it off cleanly.
