NOTES
1.    Throw is made from four each of 9 different Squares. Each of the 9 different Squares is worked in a different color and a different Tunisian crochet pattern stitch.
2.    Each row of Tunisian crochet is worked in two passes, a forward pass and a return pass. The work is never turned. Keep the right side facing you at all times.
3.    The forward pass is worked from right to left. Loops are picked up and kept on the hook during the forward pass.
4.    The return pass is worked from left to right. Loops are worked off the hook during the return pass.
5.    Different patterns are created by picking up loops in a different order or manner during the forward pass.
6.    Lace patterns are created by working chains between loops.
7.    The working yarn is held to the back of the work, except when working Tunisian Purl.
8.    Tunisian crochet fabric can have a tendency to curl. Work loosely and evenly to help minimize the curl.
