Intermediate

Crochet HookI/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Materials:

  • RED HEART® Super Saver®: 2 skeins 376 Burgundy A and 3 skeins 334 Buff B
  • Crochet hook: 5.5mm [I-9 US]
  • Yarn needle

Size: Throw measures 45” wide x 55” long (114.5 x 139.5 cm)

Gauge: 12 dc = 4” (10 cm) in pattern; 1 square motif = 10” (25.5 cm). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Special Stitch: picot = ch 2, slip st in 2nd ch from hook. Reverse sc (reverse single crochet) = Work single crochet in opposite direction from which you would usually work (left to right if you are right-handed and right to left if you are left-handed). This st is also known as crab st. It creates a rope-like twisted single crochet edging.

Abbreviations: A, B = Color A, Color B; ch = chain; dc = double crochet; sc = single crochet; sp(s) = space(s); st(s) = stitch(es); ( ) = work directions in parentheses into same st; [ ] = work directions in brackets the number of times specified; * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.

Notes:

  1. Throw is made from 20 square motifs worked in joined rounds with right facing throughout.
  2. Raised flo wers are formed by working twice in the same round: first into front loops to create petals, then in unworked loops to make the center.
  3. Motifs are joined to neighboring motifs using a “join-as-you-go” technique as the last round is worked. Hold the motifs with wrong sides together and stitches matching.
  4. Join motifs to neighboring motifs according to Assembly Diagram and instructions.
  5. T o change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.

I love items that are different or unique. This is both. I think it would be just as pretty in any color. The instructions are easy to follow and even a graph for ease of placement. I might suggest playing a blank square between flowered ones so it doesn't become to over whelming.
