Sunset Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 half double crochet + 7 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Six Panels are worked separately, then sewed together to make Throw.
2. The color is changed every 14 rows on each Panel.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the stitch. Fasten off old color.
4. The chain 2 at the beginning of every row is a turning chain and does not count as a stitch.


PANEL I
With A, chain 22.
Row 1: Half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across - 20 stitches at the end of this row.
Rows 2-14: Chain 2, turn, half double crochet in each stitch across. Change to B in last stitch of Row 14.
Rows 15-28: With B, repeat Row 2. Change to C in last stitch of Row 28.
Rows 29-42: With C, repeat Row 2. Change to D in last stitch of Row 42.
Rows 43-56: With D, repeat Row 2. Change to E in last stitch of Row 56.
Rows 57-70: With E, repeat Row 2. Change to F in last stitch of Row 70.
Rows 71-84: With F, repeat Row 2. Change to G in last stitch of Row 84.
Rows 85-98: With G, repeat Row 2.
Fasten off.

PANEL II
Make same as Panel I, working 14 rows of each color in the following order: B, C, D, E, F, G, H.

PANEL III
Make same as Panel I, working 14 rows of each color in the following order: C, D, E, F, G, H, A.

PANEL IV
Make same as Panel I, working 14 rows of each color in the following order: D, E, F, G, H, A, B.

Sunset Throw Reviewed by Paula on 2014-08-02 *****
This pattern was very easy to do - just one stitch over and over, and not too bulky to take with me, since it is worked in 6 panels. I used different colors, and I arranged the panels in a different order, so that the color blocks were random instead of touching diagonally. I used A. Barley, B. Cream, C. Hepplewhite, D. Shaker, E. Deco, F. Mediterranean, G. Rococo, and H. Edwardian.
