Lakehouse Crochet Throw Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern #: LW5497
Designed By: Marianne Forrestal

Skill Level: Easy

This easy pattern stitch is perfect for relaxing with as you crochet. Once you have completed this throw, it is perfect for relaxing with as you read a book or just daydream.

Materials:
RED HEART® Super Saver®: 4 skeins 369 Mushroom B, 1 skein each 313 Aran A and 326 Oatmeal C
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 5.5mm [US I-9]
Yarn needle
Locking stitch marker

Gauge/Tension:     8 pattern repeats + 1 st = 4″ (10 cm) (one pattern repeat consists of one stitch and one chain); 9 rows = 4″ (10 cm). CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Throw measures 46″ wide x 60″ long (117 x 152.5 cm).

Notes
1. At end of each row, color is either fastened off or dropped; next color is joined or returned to the hook and worked into stitches and chain-1
spaces. Do not turn or cut yarn unless otherwise instructed.
2. Place the dropped loop on a locking stitch marker so it doesn’t unravel as the next row is worked.
3. Border is worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times.
