Knit Tiles Throw

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


Each Square measures 8 inches to 8½ 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Row 1 (WS): Knit
Row 2 (RS): Purl.
Rows 3-4: Knit
Row 5: Purl.
Row 6: *K2tog, yo; rep from * across, end k2tog, yo, k 1.
Row 7: Purl.
Row 8: Knit.
Rep Rows 1-8 for Square Pat.


Always use 2 strands of yarn for each color.

Square A (make 18):
With straight needles Size 11 and C, cast on 23 sts. Foll Square Pat, work 15 rows with C, ending with a WS row. Drop C, pick up W. Cont in Square Pat for 12 rows, ending with a WS row. Drop W, pick up C. Cont in Square Pat for 15 rows, ending with a RS row. Bind off from WS, with a knit row. Side Edge
Finishing Row: With C, pick up 24 sts along side edge of Square A, turn. Bind off with a knit row. Work same Finishing Row on other side edge of Square A.

Square B (make 17):
Work same as Square A, reversing colors: use W for C and C for W. Use C for Finishing Row along side edges.

Join Squares in 7 strips with 5 Squares in each strip as foll: Strips #1, 3, 5, 7: Alternate 1 Square A horizontally and 1 Square B vertically until 5 Squares are joined. Strips #2, 4, & 6: Alternate 1 Square B vertically and 1 Square A horizontally until 5 Squares are joined. When 7 strips are completed, join strips alternately so that there is a checkerboard effect.

Row 1: Join 2 strands of C at one corner and with circular needle Size 101/2, *pick up 24 sts along each Square to next corner; rep from * around entire throw (164 sts along each side edge; 120 sts along top and bottom), turn.
Row 2: Knit.

Knit, inc 1 st inside first and last st on each side (8 incs made).
Rows 4-9: Rep these 2 rows until 9 rows are completed.
Row 10:
Knit and bind off loosely.

Join 2 strands of W in one corner and with Size K crochet hook, work in reverse sc (working from left to right) as foll: 1 reverse sc in corner, *skip 1 st, ch 1, 1 reverse sc in next st; rep from * around, do not join.
Rnd 2:
*1 reverse sc in ch-1 space, ch 1, skip next reverse sc; rep from * around. Fasten off. Finish off all ends.

Knit Tiles Throw Reviewed by Helen Heller on 2009-06-26 *****
Works up quickly. Exquisite in black and teal green, and I put it together with a strand each of black 4 ply and black eyelash yarn. Quite pretty.
