Striped Intarsia Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®Thick & Quick®


7 sts + 11 rows = about 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


Loop St (worked on RS, all in one st) Insert crochet hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in front of work as follows: Bring working yarn to the front; hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook. Leaving a loop of yarn in the front about 9 in. (23 cm) long, bring the working yarn to back of work. Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.


1. Main section of Throw is worked in intarsia knitting. When working intarsia, do not carry yarns across the WS of work. Use a separate ball of yarn for each color. When changing color, pick up new color from under dropped color to prevent holes from forming in your work.
2. Sts for border are picked up along one short side of Throw.
3. Edging and fringe are crocheted.

With A, cast on 40 sts, change to B and cast on 50 sts with B.
Row 1 (WS): With B, p 50, with A, p 40.
Row 2 (RS): Working A sts with A and B sts with B, knit.
Rows 3-9: Rep Rows 1 and 2 three times, then rep Row 1.
Row 10: With A, knit.
Row 11: With A, p 50, with B, p 40.
Row 12: Rep Row 2.
Rows 13-19: Rep Rows 11 and 12 three times, then rep Row 11.
Row 20: With B, knit.
Rep Rows 1-20 until piece measures 45 in. (114.5 cm) from beg.
Bind off.

Side Border
From RS with B, pick up and k80 sts evenly spaced across one short side of Throw. Work in St st until border measures 6 in. (15 cm) from picked up sts.
Bind off.
Crochet Edging and Fringe
From RS, with crochet hook, join A with sl st in any corner so that you are ready to work along one long side of Throw. *Work single crochet evenly spaced along long side of Throw to next corner; work Loop st across short side of Throw to next corner; rep from * once more; join with sl st in first st. Fasten off.
