Cozy Striped Throw
Lion Brand« Homespun® Thick & Quick®
6 hdc + 4 1/2 rows = about 4 in. (10 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 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.
To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st.
STRIPE SEQUENCE Work (4 rows with A, 3 rows with B, 3 rows with A, 1 row with B, 1 row with A) 3 times, 4 rows with A, 3 rows with B, 3 rows with A.
THROW With A, ch 56. Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across - 54 hdc. Row 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each hdc across. Rep Row 2, continuing to change color as in Stripe Sequence, until all 46 rows of the Stripe Sequence have been completed. Fasten off.

Would be pretty but... Reviewed by squihgly on 2014-01-10
I am a fairly new crocheter, but I feel like I have all the basic stitches down. I have also made several projects such as granny square throws, hats, and boot cuffs. That being said, I found this yarn VERY VERY challenging to work with. I was able to chain, but couldn't find where to insert my hook to create the HDCs. I ended up putting the yarn away and moving on to a different pattern using "regular" yarn. Beginners beware! I'm giving this three stars because I feel like it would make a gorgeous throw or afghan if you are used to the texture of the yarn.
