Autumn Throw

Lion Brand« Homespun® - Chenille Thick & Quick® - Jiffy® - Wool-Ease® - Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Pattern.

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:

Work with 2 strands of yarns held together in pattern stitch sequence.

COLOR SEQUENCE

Work 4 rows for each stripe
Stripe 1 A and H
Stripe 2 D and I
Stripe 3 F and L
Stripe 4 B and J
Stripe 5 E and K
Stripe 6 C and H
Stripe 7 D and I
Stripe 8 Two strands of G
Stripe 9 C and J
Stripe 10 F and L

PATTERN 1

(multiple of 16 + 1)

Row 1 (RS)

K 1, *yo, k 6, (slip 2 tog as if to knit, k 1, p2sso), k 6, yo, k 1; rep from * across.
Row 2 Purl.
Row 3 Same as Row 1.
Row 4 Purl.

PATTERN 2

Rows 1-4

Knit.

NOTES:

Editor’s Note: When creating fringe using Homespun please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.


THROW

Beginning with Color Stripe 1, cast on 97 sts and knit 3 rows. With Color Stripe 2, begin Pattern 1. Continue working in Color Sequence Stripes alternating Pattern 1 and Pattern 2. Work Color Sequence 4 times. Knit 3 rows with Color Stripe 1. Bind off all sts loosely.

FINISHING

With all yarns, cut strands 18" long. Mix and match 18 strands for each fringe and attach to tip and base of each point at either end of throw - 26 total.

Autumn Throw Reviewed by Linda D Mansker on 2011-12-20 *****
This is one of my faves to make. I've been knitting and crocheting for decades, so I found this quite easy to make. I've done it four times now, in the original color way, doubled up in blues, doubled up in purples, and in light neutrals. The double throws were given away as wedding presents for two.

The finished look of the finished throw is rich, thick and warm. As some of the other reviewers note, the resulting fabric is heavy, but that's what I love about it - the winters where I am are cold, and this is a great throw to snuggle under with a good book, or to watch old movies with my sweetie. I'm definitely making this one again.
