GAUGE:
16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in slip st patterns. One Square = about 18 x 18 in. (45.5 x 45.5 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
RT (Right Twist) K2tog and leave on left needle, then with right needle, go between the 2 sts and k the first st again.

LT (Left Twist) Knit 2nd st on left needle through the back loop and leave on left needle.

Then knit both the first and 2nd sts together through the back loop.

NOTES:
1.

Throw is made from 6 Squares.

All the Squares are worked the same, simply changing the color combinations.

2.

Squares are sewed together following an Assembly Diagram.

3.

Each Square is worked in a log-cabin fashion - beginning with a central square with each "Log" picked up along edges.

The central square and each "Log" are worked in a different slip st pattern.

4.

Slip st patterns are worked in 2 colors.

In each row, one of the colors is knit while the contrast color is slipped.

The knit color is changed every other row.

5.

With yarn in front (wyif) refers to the side of the work facing you as you work the row; with yarn in back (wyib) refers to the side of the work that is away from you as you work the row.
