    • 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.
    • Throw measures approximately 44” [112 cm] x 56” [142 cm] (including edging).

    • 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 changing to B in last dc; turn – 4 blocks.
    • Continue in this manner, increasing 1 block at beginning of each row until there are 48 blocks across. AT SAME TIME, work Stripe pattern as follows: 6 rows B, 6 rows C, 6 rows D, 2 rows A. Repeat these 20 rows throughout for stripe pattern.
    • Shape Second Corner

    • Decrease Row 1: Slip st across first 3 dc to ch-3 space of 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.
    • Shape Third Corner: Keeping in Stripe pattern, repeat Decrease Row 1 every row, decreasing 1 block at beginning of every row until 1 block remains on last row for last corner. Fasten off.

    • FINISHING: Edging Round: With right side facing, join A in any ch-3 space, ch 3, 4 dc in same space, *[sc in center dc of next block, 5 dc in next ch-3 space] to corner; work 6 dc in corner space; repeat from * around to beginning edge, [sc in center dc of next block, 5 dc in next ch-3 space] to first st, join with a slip st in top of beginning ch-3. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
