SIZE

34” wide x 52” long.

MATERIALS

BERROCO SOFTWIST (50 grs), 7 hanks #9412 Palmetto (A), and 5 hanks each #9420 Nouveau Berry (B), #9439 Ginger (C), #9450 Violet (D) and #9427 Dijon (E).

Crochet Hook, size 6.00 mm (J) OR SIZE TO OBTAIN GAUGE.

GAUGE

24 sts = 4”;  13 rows = 4” in Pat St.

TO SAVE TIME, TAKE TIME TO CHECK GAUGE.

NOTE 1

All sc’s of Row 2 and following rows should be worked through the back loop only EXCEPT the first 2 and last 2 sts of each row.  These should be worked through BOTH loops creating an edge that will not curl.

NOTE 2

When changing colors at the end of a row, draw new color through 2 lps on hook to complete sc.  Make sure to leave a 5”-long end of new color and cut old color leaving a 5”-long end so you can easily weave in ends after throw is completed.

STRIPE SEQUENCE

Work 14 rows A, 10 rows B, 6 rows C, 2 rows D, 14 rows E, 10 rows A, 6 rows B, 2 rows C, 14 rows D, 10 rows E, 6 rows A, 2 rows B, 14 rows C, 10 rows D, 6 rows E, 2 rows A, 14 rows B, 10 rows C, 6 rows D, 2 rows E, then 14 rows A – 174 rows.
