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® Gumdrop®: 2 balls each 202 Lemon A and 625 Apple B, 3 balls each 620 Cherry C and 501 Smoothie D
  • Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 5.5mm [I-9 US].

GAUGE:
13 sts = 4” (10 cm) in pattern; Rounds 1–8 = 4” (10 cm). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge


Throw measures 42” x 42” (106.5 x 106.5 cm)

Special Stitch
Fptr (Front post treble crochet) = [Yarn over] twice, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of the indicated stitch 3 rows below, yarn over and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops] 3 times.
Note: Do not work into the corresponding stitch in the current working row.
Special Technique
Adjustable-ring method—Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.
Color Sequence
After Round 1, *work 3 rounds with A, 3 rounds with B, 3 rounds with C, and 3 rounds with D; repeat from * twice.
Notes
1. Throw is worked in joined rounds with right facing at all times.
2. Following color sequence, change color at the end of every 3rd row.
3. Loosen your tension when working front post triple crochet so that throw lays flat.
4. When instructed to work into a stitch “3 rows below”, work into the row numbered 3 less than the current row. For example, if you are working Row 5, a stitch “2 rows below” is in Row 5 – 3 = Row 2
