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 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.
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.

Cozy Striped Throw Reviewed by Kirsten Verdi on 2015-09-01
The throw turned out smaller than I thought and unfortunately one ball of herb garden was not enough for all the stripes so I modified them a bit. Regardless, my grandson snuggles under it when he comes over which makes it all worth the effort
