MATERIALS
BERROCO MEDLEY (50 grs), 2 balls each #8916 Deauville (A) and #8931 Louvre (C) and 1 ball each #8915 Berroco Mix (B), #8902 Moulin Rouge (D), #8923 Palazzo Purple (E), #8913 Damariscotta Mix (F), #8917 Sari Mix (G) and #8924 Vivoli (H).
Straight knitting needles, size 11 OR SIZE TO OBTAIN GAUGE.

 

GAUGE
14 sts = 4”;  24 rows = 4” in Garter Stitch (knit every row) with all colors.
TO SAVE TIME, TAKE TIME TO CHECK GAUGE.

 

NOTE
This throw is made all in one piece, adding squares as you go along.  The designer was working with partial balls, so when she finished a ball of A, she tied on a ball of B and worked until that ball was completed, etc.  For this reason, you may see a row or 2 of one square done with the color preceding it.  To achieve a very close version of ours, follow the chart.  Otherwise, make up your own design and have a truly unique piece of art.

 

THROW
Square 1:  With straight needles, using A, cast on 31 sts.
Rows 1 and 2:  Knit.
Row 3 (Right Side Row):  K14, k3 tog, k14 – 29 sts.

Square 2:  With RS facing, using A, pick up and k14 sts along left edge of square 1, then cast on 16 sts – 31 sts.  Complete same as for square 1.  Continue in this way to make 3 more squares, changing colors as in note, so that you have a row of 5 squares.  Fasten off.
