With this Candy Stripe Corner-to-Corner Throw, you can combine any colors you want to create a gorgeous striped blanket for yourself or for a gift. Because it's a corner-to-corner pattern, you won't have to sew anything up when you're done. You'll simply work from one corner to the other with increasing and decreasing stripes in your chosen colors.

Check out some of the color ideas shown below or come up with your own combination to try. This intermediate design may take a bit to get the hang of but, once you have it down, you'll be creating this throw constantly.

NOTES:
-Change color on an increase row as
follows: Work last dc until 2 loops remain
on hook, cut old color, yo with new color to
complete dc, continue with new color.
-Change color on a decrease row as
follows: Do not ch 6, turn, slip st in first 3
dc, insert hook in ch-3 space of same block,
yo with new color, complete slip st with new
color and continue with new color.

Instructions for THROW:

  1. Shape First Corner
    With A, ch 6.

    Row 1 (Right Side): Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch; turn – 1 corner block made.
    Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch (beginning block made), (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 space of previous row (block made); turn – 2 blocks.
    Row 3: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] twice; turn – 3 blocks.
    Row 4: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] 3 times; turn – 4 blocks.
    Continue in this manner, increasing 1 block on each row until there are 48 blocks across AND working Stripe pattern as follows: 2 more rows A (for a total of 6 rows), 2 rows B, 4 rows C, 3 rows A, 4 rows D, 2 rows C, 6 rows A, 3 rows B, 6 rows C, 2 rows D. Repeat these 38 rows throughout for stripe pattern.

    Note: When repeating stripe sequence begin with 6 rows of A. Continue in this manner increasing at beginning of every row until side edge measures 44" (48 blocks).

    Do not change color at end of last row.

  2. Shape Second Corner

    Note: Mark beginning edge as width of piece. You will be decreasing 1 block at beginning of one row and increasing 1 block at beginning of next row to maintain the same number of blocks across. Follow Notes for changing colors.

    Decrease Row 1: Slip st across first 3 dc to ch-3 space of first second block of previous row, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] to end of row; turn – 48 blocks.
    Increase Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] to last block, slip st in ch-3 space of last block; turn – 48 blocks.

    Keeping in Stripe pattern, repeat last 2 rows until piece measures 43" [109 cm] along marked edge and 55" [140 cm] along unmarked edge. 

  3. Shape Third Corner Decrease

    Row 2: Slip st across first 3 dc to ch-3 space of first block of previous row, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] to last block, slip st in ch-3 space of last block; turn.

    Keeping in Stripe pattern, repeat Decrease Row 2 every row, decreasing 1 block on each row until 1 block remains on last row for last corner.
    Fasten off.

I love the maroon/dk gray/lt gray contrasting colors. Blue and combination has its own character but maroon and combination has its own unique flavor, too. This Candy Stripe Corner-to-Corner Throw is just so beautiful. It can be a treasured housewarming, a house blessing, or just a special gift to a friend or relative. This master piece will be treasured forever.
