Quick-Knit Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

5 sts = 3 inches. 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.

Quick-Knit Throw Reviewed by Patricia OBrien on 2015-05-04 ****
The pattern I started with called for Wool-Ease quick and thick yarn and # 50 speed stik needles. I used 3 strands of wool-ease and # 35 needles. It was a rocky start for me but soon it began to take shape. It was my first large project. I am pleased with the outcome, but there are a couple places I could have done better. I recommend using the Chai-Goo circular needles available through Lion Brand. Here is a picture of my finished project. I did not know what to do to for blocking, but sage advice said was on delicate and dry on low to not quite dry and finish flat.
