"The Siesta Throw is a beautiful Tunisian crochet throw that helps you to master basic Tunisian crochet stitches while working up an amazing textured home décor item that will be cherished throughout chilly autumn and winter months. Similar light weight yarns may be substituted; please check gauge. Number of lps on hook equals number of sts for row counting. This project is made holding 2 strands throughout; you can either work from 2 balls of yarn separately, or prepare your yarn by winding both strands it into 1 giant ball."
