I am working on this throw and using 2 skeins at a time instead of 3. I am using an N hook. I needed apx ten skeins of variegated yarn (apx 250yd/per). I made it longer and wider than shown. I put 2 rows of V-stitch on sides which looks nicely finished. I will add fringe to bottom/top. Almost finished. Took me DAYS not hours to complete. Hope this info helps.

I plan to try making this throw but I'm not sure what the last part of the instructions for rows 2 - 39 means: "dc in 3rd ch of turning ch." Any help would be appreciated. Lisa

the last dc joined to the 3rd ch of turning ch will act as (dc,ch 1, dc) to complete the row.

I can't get to the pattern. It keeps redirecting to an ad site.

SIZE: One Size 45 x 60 in. (114.5 x 152.5 cm) Materials: 860-099 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Linen, 5 balls 860-107 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Sapphire, 5 balls 860-172 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Kelly Green, 5 balls Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size Q-19 Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6) 11 in. (28 cm) piece of cardboard GAUGE: 3 V-sts + 4 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) in pattern with 3 strands of yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. NOTES: Throw is worked with 1 strand of each color yarn held together. THROW With 1 strand each of A, B and C held together, ch 67. Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook, ch 1, dc in same ch (V-st made), *sk 2 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch (V-st made); repeat from * to last 2 ch, sk 1 ch, dc in last ch. Rows 2-39: Ch 3, turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch-1 sp across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch. Fasten off. FINISHING Side Edging From Right Side, work 1 row of single crochet evenly spaced on side edge of Throw. Repeat on opposite side edge. Weave in ends. Fringe Wrap yarn around cardboard. Cut strands at one end. For each Fringe, hold 3 strands of each yarn (9 strands total) together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop. Pull ends of Fringe through this loop and tighten. Make fringe along both ends of Throw. Trim fringe evenly.

I forgot to mention that I did not add the fringe to this throw. It takes a lot of yarn and I don't care for fringe that much when one uses an afghan. I think fringe is more for looks.

I made this in about 7 hours. Plan on making another one but making it bigger for better coverage

I made this afghan with Red Heart Super Saver yarn using 15 oz of 3 colors and the Q hook. It turned out beautiful. It is very lacy looking with the V-stitch spaces being a little to large for my family since the toes and fingers seem to come through easily.

This is very pretty but at a cost of about $65.00 (15 balls about $4.00 each), it's way out of my price range. It would take me 3 months just to purchase the yarn. Maybe one day I will try it.

I've made 4 of these afghans in one month using Caron Simply Soft and a K needle, 2 strands at a time. I used 10 skeins buying them on sale, 2 for $6.00 or $33.00 depending on your sales tax. It's a soft blanket with smaller holes, about 48" x 65". It took 5 days to make each one. I worked about 10 hours total. I added a V boarder around to complete the look. I hope this helps!

I made two of these with Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for gifts, also got the pattern from Lion Brand website. Took me about 8 hours, not too bad, and turned out cuddly and warm.

Just wanted to say that I made 2 of these for christmas gifts and love them both very much. However it took me much longer than afew hours to make. I'm going to say that alot of it had to do with hand problems (carpal tunnel) and then the demands of family throughout the project but all in all the throws still were done quicker than a normal stitched afghan and I wouldn't mind making another for myself

This comment may be late, but I have the same pattern freebie from Michaels Lion Brand yarn, and it calls for: Vanna's Choice(Art #860) #099 linen 5 balls #100 white 5 balls #123 Beige5 balls Lion Brand crochet hook size Q-19(15mm) Choose any colors you want, make sure what ever yarn you use fits the gauge by the hook us use. Example, if you choose not to use their suggested yarn, needle size, or the three yarns per the pattern, you have to experiment with your own needle and yarn. Also the weight of the yarn matters on thick or thin. I am a rebel, so I use what I have and I am in between beg & easy, more than 3 rows is to fussie for me, my brain freezes, unless I follow U-tube videos.

Can someone please tell me how many skeins of yarn that you need to make this throw? Ty

So how much of each color is needed? (this is like reading a mystery novel). P

How many skeins of each color are needed for this pattern -- didn't see in project info

This is what it says on the lionsbrand web site about this pattern: Skill Level: Easy Size: One Size Craft: Crochet Corrections: None Pattern #: 80112AD Customer Rating: ***** 4.6 (based on 14 reviews) Write your own review Materials: 5 balls 860-099 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Linen 5 balls 860-107 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Sapphire 5 balls 860-172 Vanna's Choice Yarn: Kelly Green 1 Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size Q-19 1 Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6) 11 in. (28 cm) piece of cardboard Hope that helps! :)

sharilynparr, did you use the 5 balls of each color then ? I sure do want to try this pattern.

Hi, This question is about the 5 1/2 hour throw. It doesn't tell how many of each color of yarn you need to buy. Thank you. I love your web site. Lucy

The Lion Brand site indicates 5 balls of each color you choose to use - they use orange colors on the site; the fringe can be easily added - I doubt this will be a 5.5 hour project, especially with 3 strands and quick work, it doesn't seem likely!! But beautiful when done I'm sure.

Still no one has indicated how many ball of yarn this takes

How many balls of each color should I buy?

How many balls of each color did it take? Wish the pattern would indicate that.

Like this pattern- it's easy and looks good. But it took me MANY more than 5 1/2 hours to do, and I'm not a beginner. Anyway, still a good pattern. Had a little trouble figuring out how not to get the 3 strands tangled, but eventually I set up a little box with three compartments so that the balls were kept separate and couldn't roll around together. I used a Q hook.

Thanks for the input. I have changed the hook size to a size Q.

WHAT'S GOING ON? I CAN'T GET THIS PATTERN! I'V Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage E TRIED TWICE AND BOTH TIMES GET A PAGE SAYING " Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." VERY FRUSTRATING.

I've crocheted this throw and with 3 strands with a Q hook specified in the pattern and it came out great!

On this 5 1/2 hr. blanket you wrote that a M hook should be used. If you click on instruc. Lion Brand writes that a Q hook should be used. A reader wrote in and said that she used a N hook because Q was too big. It doesn't affect me but I believe that you should check on hook size.
