Notes
1. Throw is made from boomerang motifs and triangles arranged as shown in Assembly Diagram.
2. Boomerang motifs are joined with a “join as you go” technique. Begin with Foundation Motif and work across rows from bottom of throw to top joining boomerang motifs 1, 2, and 3. Next work 2-arm boomerangs at ends of rows. Refer to diagram for correct placement of side-to-arm and arm-to-side joins.
3. 1-arm boomerangs are made after all other motifs are worked. Triangles are sewn in last between motifs.
4. Border is worked in joined rounds with. Refer to Assembly Diagram for placement of first stitch.
Special Stitches
arm-to-side scwj (single crochet whipstitch join) = drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side in
first of 3 centered stitches on side adjacent motif, pick up loop on hook, pull through indicated stitch, sc in next stitch of current
round, [drop loop from hook, insert hook from right side to wrong side in next stitch in adjacent motif, pick up loop on hook, pull through indicated stitch, sc in same stitch of current round] twice.
Fdc (foundation double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook into the “chain” of the previous stitch and pull up a loop, yarn
over and draw through one loop on hook (the “chain”); [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] (the “double crochet”).
FFdc (first foundation double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the “chain”); [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice.

Border
Note: Work across each motif, skipping joined stitches between motifs; add or omit stitches so piece appears evenly stitched
and work into chain at corner of triangle as needed. When instructed to work a specific number of stitches across a motif, evenly space the stitches. Stitch count may vary.
