I made this throw for my husband. It's made in a very easy shell pattern with a border that has one round of single crochet and one round of reverse single crochet. I used Red Heart worsted weight yarn in the color of Aran Fleck to add more texture.
- Size I (5.50mm) hook or whatever hook size gives you gauge
- 39 oz worsted weight yarn
- Tapestry needle
50" by 50"
7 shells = 4 inches/10cm
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. ch1, turn.
Row 2: sc in first sc, *skip next sc, 1sc and 1dc in next sc* repeat from * across until the last sc. sc in last sc. ch 1, turn.
Row 3: sc in the first sc *skip next dc, 1 sc and 1 dc in next sc* repeat from* across until the last sc. sc in last sc. ch1, turn.
Repeat row 3 until throw is 49" inches/122.5cm long.
Last Row: sc in each sc and dc across -- do not fasten off --weave in ends.
Rnd1: sc evenly around throw -- 3 sc in each corner
Rnd2: Reverse sc in each sc around. Fasten off and weave in ends.
