I’m back with a continuation of the post for the 6 hour knitted throw. This variation of the knitted versiton is also worked up quickly on a very large crochet hook. While the knitted one is done in stockinet stich the crocheted on is done in the very simple V stitch. You probably could do this one just has fast if not faster. I really hope you enjoy. An idea is to work these up in rich deep colors for Fall or even wintery colors as well. Enjoy!
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
SIZE: One Size 45 x 60 in. (114.5 x 152.5 cm)
MATERIALS • Worsted or “4” Yarn: 5 Balls (A) : 5 Balls (B) : 5 Balls (C) • Crochet Hook – Size Q-19 • Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6) • Additional Materials 11 in. (28 cm) piece of cardboard GAUGE:
3 V-sts + 4 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern with 3 strands of yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Throw is worked with 1 strand of each color yarn held together.
THROW With 1 strand each of A, B and C held together, ch 67. Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in same ch (V-st made), *sk 2 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch (V-st made); repeat from * to last 2 ch, sk 1 ch, dc in last ch.

FINISHING Side Edging From Right Side, work 1 row of single crochet evenly spaced on side edge of Throw. Repeat on opposite side edge. Weave in ends.
Fringe Wrap yarn around cardboard. Cut strands at one end. For each Fringe, hold 3 strands of each yarn (9 strands total) together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop. Pull ends of Fringe through this loop and tighten. Make fringe along both ends of Throw. Trim fringe evenly.
