GAUGE:
5 hdc + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
1.

Throw is worked holding 2 strands of yarn tog throughout.
2.

When the color is changed, one of the old colors is dropped and one strand of a new color is added.


3.

Change to a new color combination by working last st of old color combination to last yarn over.

Drop the old color (just one strand).

Leaving a long beginning tail, pick up one strand of the new color.

Yarn over with the new color combination and draw through all loops on hook to complete the stitch.

Fasten off the dropped strand.
