SIZE: About 35"x35"
16 sts + 7 rows = 4" in pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to make a 4" square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch (shell made), sk next 2 ch, dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch; rep from * across – 17 shells at the end of this row.
Rows 2-54: Ch 4, turn, *sk next ch-1 sp, dc in next dc, sk next 2 dc, 5 dc in next dc, sk next 2 dc, dc in next dc, ch
1; rep from * across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch. Do not fasten off.
Rnd 1: Do not turn, work sc evenly spaced around entire outside edge of Throw, working 3 sc in each corner; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same sc as join, sk next sc, 5 dc in next sc, *sk next sc, sc in next sc, sk next sc, 5 dc in next sc;
rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc. Note: In order to end evenly, you may need to sk an additional st or two. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
