5˝ Hour Throw

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


In pattern, 3 V-s sts = 6", 4 rows = 6".

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


Throw is worked with three strands of yarn held together throughout.

Starting at bottom edge of the throw, with three strands of yarn held together, loosely ch 67.
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in same st, * skip 2 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch; repeat from * to last 2 ch, sk 1 ch, dc in last ch. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: *(Dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch-1 sp-one V-stitch made; repeat from * across, ending with dc in top of turning-ch. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until 40 rows have been completed. Fasten off.

With the right side facing you, work 1 row of sc along each side edge of the throw.

Wind a single strand of yarn around an 11" piece of cardboard. Cut at one end, making 22"-long strands. Attach 9 strands per fringe. Fold strands of yarn in half to form a loop; insert the crochet hook through back of work in first stitch along bottom edge of throw; pull loop through. Bring the ends through loop and tighten. Continue to attach fringe in every other space along the bottom edge. Repeat for the top edge. Trim fringe evenly.

5˝ hour Throw Reviewed by Julie Kezar on 2012-09-09 *****
I made one of these for my daughter to take to college. I used two strands instead of three, but it still is thick and cuddly. One piece of advice: if you use Homespun Lion Brand yarn, find a worsted weight similarly-colored yarn for the fringe. Homespun does not fringe well.
