Diagonal-Striped Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 inches (10 cm) in single crochet. 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.

Diagonal-Striped Throw Reviewed by Karyn Poore on 2014-02-07 ***
I've had this pattern for awhile and finally got around to putting my supplies together (I'm new to crocheting). I chose Mediterranean and Rococo for my colors and sat down to start. I am a little confused as to how to begin because the instructions don't say anything about a foundation chain, it just says Ch 2. Can you direct me to more detail?
Thank you!!
