Knitted 'Waterfall' Throw
Lion Brand® Homespun®
4 sts = 3 inches, using two strands of yarn held together. 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.
k1b = knit into back loop p1b = purl into back loop

Knitted 'Waterfall' Throw Reviewed by JEANNE GREENE on 2013-10-25
I have knitted this pattern with (1) shaker and (2) fiesta. The stitches are easy and the instructions, clear BUT when using tweed colors you cannot see your stitches or where you are in the pattern, which makes counting necessary. And after knitting with this yarn for several days in a row, I had an allergic reaction to the . fuzz. This is beautiful yarn, but if I use it again, I will (no joke) wear a mask.
