Silvery Granny Throw

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

One Square = 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in. (14 x 14 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

beg-dc Leaving a long tail to weave in later, hold the working yarn firmly against the hook, (yarn over) twice, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice.
large-shell Work 5 dc in indicated st or sp.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts tog) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.
small-shell Work 3 dc in indicated st or sp.
square-join Drop loop from hook, insert hook from RS to WS through the corresponding ch-sp of the neighboring Square, return the dropped loop to the hook and draw it through the ch-sp.

NOTES:

1. Throw is made from 83 Squares joined tog using a join-as-you-go technique while working the last rnd.
2. Refer to Assembly Diagram before working the last rnd of each Square to determine neighboring Squares to which the current Square is to be joined.
3. To keep this project small and portable for as long as possible, you may wish to make all 83 Squares through Rnd 3. Then work the last 2 rnds, joining the Squares tog while working Rnd 5.
4. In Rnds 2 and 3 the yarn can be joined and the first dc worked traditionally, by drawing up a loop of yarn and working ch 3. Alternately, the yarn can be joined and the first dc worked at the same time by working a beg-dc as described in the Stitch Explanations section above.
5. Border is worked in rows onto completed Throw.


THROW
SQUARE 1

With D, ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 3 (counts as first dc in this rnd and in all following rnds), 2 dc in ring, (ch 2, 3 dc in ring) 3 times, ch 2; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 12 dc (four 3-dc groups) and 4 ch-2 sps. Fasten off.
Rnd 2: From RS, draw up a loop of C in any ch-2 sp, ch 3, (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same ch-2 sp (first corner made), *ch 2, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-2 sp (corner made); rep from * 2 more times, ch 2; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 24 dc (eight 3-dc groups), and 8 ch-2 sps (4 side ch-2 sps and 4 corner ch-2 sps). Fasten off.
Rnd 3: From RS, draw up a loop of B in any side ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-2 sp, ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-2 sp (corner), *ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-2 sp; rep from * 2 more times, ch 2; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 36 dc (twelve 3-dc groups). Fasten off.
Rnd 4: From RS, join A with sc in any corner ch-2 sp, ch 2, sc in same corner ch-2 sp, ch 1, sk next dc, sc in next dc, (ch 1, sc in next ch-2 sp, ch 1, sk next dc, sc in next dc) twice, *ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp, ch 1, sk next dc, sc in next dc, (ch 1, sc in next ch-2 sp, ch 1, sk next dc, sc in next dc) twice; rep from * 2 more times, ch 1; join with sl st in first sc - 28 sc, 24 ch-1 sps, and 4 corner ch-2 sps.
Do not fasten off.
Rnd 5: With A, (sl st, ch 1, sc, ch 4, sc) in first corner ch-2 sp, *(sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 4, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp; rep from * 2 more times, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp to end of rnd; join with sl st in first sc - 56 sc, 24 ch-2 sps, and 4 corner ch-4 sps. Fasten off.

SQUARES 2-83
With D, ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnds 1-4: Work same as Rnds 1-4 of Square 1 - 28 sc, 24 ch-1 sps, and 4 corner ch-2 sps at the end of Rnd 4.
Notes:
1. Each Square is joined to neighboring Square(s) across one or more side edge(s). The ch-2 sps across the side edge and the ch-4 sps at the beg and end of the side are joined as Rnd 5 is worked. Ch-sps are joined by carefully threading the ch of the current Square through the corresponding ch-sp of the neighboring Square. Read the instructions for "square-join" in the Stitch Explanations section carefully before beginning.
2. Refer to Assembly Diagram for placement. Note the number of neighboring Squares to which the current Square needs to be joined. If you join Squares in the order indicated in the Assembly Diagram each Square will need to be joined to at most 2 neighboring Squares.
3. If the current Square needs to be joined to only one neighboring Square, work Rnd 5 (join one side). If the current Square needs to be joined to two neighboring Squares work Rnd 5 (join 2 sides).
4. When joining, hold the current Square and the neighboring Square with WS tog, sts matching, and RS of current Square facing you.
Rnd 5 (join one side): With A, (sl st, ch 1, sc, ch 4, sc) in first corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 1, square-join, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 4, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp to end of rnd; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Rnd 5 (join 2 sides): With A, (sl st, ch 1, sc, ch 4, sc) in first corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp, *(sc, ch 1, square-join, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 sp across to next corner ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, square-join, ch 2, sc) in next corner ch-2 sp; rep from * once more, (sc, ch 2, sc) in each ch-1 sp to end of rnd; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Border
Rnd 1 (RS):
From RS, join A with sc in any ch-2 sp immediately following an outer/un-joined corner ch-4 sp, *small-shell in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp; rep from * around working in corner sps and 4 corner edges as follows: 1. Outer corners: Large-shell in each outer/un-joined corner ch-4 sp.
2. Inner corners: One sc in each ch-sp on each side of the square-join. Note: This means that at inner corners you will work a small-shell in the ch-2 sp before the inner corner, two sc sts (one in the corner ch-sp on each side of the square-join) and then a small-shell in the following ch-2 sp.
3. Corner edges (un-joined edges of Squares 1, 26, 58, and 83 that form corners of Throw): Work large-shell in first corner ch-4 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, small-shell in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, small-shell in sp between next 2 sc, sc in next ch-2 sp, small-shell in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, lg-shell in next corner ch-4 sp. Note: This ensures that shells are alternated with sc sts all the way around. Join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Rnd 2: From RS, join C with sc in same st as joining, *(sc, ch 2, sc) in center dc of next small-shell, ch 1, sc in next sc; rep from * around working in corners as follows: 1. Outer corners: Over the large-shell work ch 1, sk first dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next dc, (sc, ch 3, sc) in next dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next dc, ch 1, sk last dc.
2. Inner corners: Work sc2tog over the 2 sc sts at each inner corner.
Join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
