Make a free crochet afghan pattern in just under six hours. This is a great throw from Lion Brand Yarn you can make in just one night. Vanna's Choice Yarn is used for a soft feel.

SIZE: One Size
45 x 60 in. (114.5 x 152.5 cm)

Materials:
860-099 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Linen, 5 balls
860-107 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Sapphire, 5 balls
860-172 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Kelly Green, 5 balls
Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size Q-19
Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
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 fewer 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.

NOTES:

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.
Rows 2-39: Ch 3, turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 sp across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch.
Fasten off.

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.
