'Cascading Leaves' Throw

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

Each square measures 7¼ inches x 7¼ 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.

FINISHING:
Assembly:
With cast-on corners touching at center of block, join 4 squares to form a 14½ in square block (leaves radiate from center out to corners of block). Make 12 blocks. Join blocks to form a panel, 3 blocks by 4 blocks.
Border: On RS, using circular needles, pick up and k 180 sts (30 sts for each square) across one narrow end of panel. Work in garter st (k each row) and inc 1 st each end of every other row. Work until there are 8 ridges (16 rows) on RS. Bind off on next WS row. Repeat on other narrow end of panel. Work in same manner, picking up 240 sts along each side edge. Neatly sew shaped border edges together to form mitered corners.

'Cascading Leaves' Throw Reviewed by Sharon Sweeting on 2013-09-06 ****
Made a test square to see if I could do it and it was VERY pretty so I took the plunge. Would have been helpful to have the total number of stitches at the end of every 4 or 5 rows to see if you were on target as this is NOT an easy pattern to follow. It may take me a year to finish but oh my, how lovely it will look. And I am keeping this is for ME!
