Kirsten’s Chunky Fireside Throw

KIRSTEN’S CHUNKY FIRESIDE THROW

Share the art within you with the ones you love

Kirsten’s Chunky Fireside Throw is a quick and easy to make throw, using super chunky yarn which I designed especially for my little girl’s teacher, who loves nothing more than to snuggle up under something soft and warm, with some tea and a good book.  Because I used thick yarn and a large hook, this pattern worked up nice and quickly, and I had some fun when I made the tassels.  Kirsten’s Chunky Fireside Throw is a perfect gift to make someone special.

PATTERN – Kirsten’s Chunky Fireside Throw

Using a 15 mm hook chain 56

 

Row 1

Make a sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, sc into next 53 ch’s (54 sc), ch 1, turn

 

Row 2

Make a sc into 1st st, working into the blo, make sc into next 53 sts into the blo (54 sc), ch 1, turn

 

Helpful hint: count your stitches every couple of rows, even experienced crafters can make a mistake, especially at the turning stitch.

 

Row 3 – 71

Repeat row 2

 

Row 4

Make a sc into 1st st, working into the blo, make a sc into next 52 sts into the blo, THEN sc into last st through both loops (54 sc), do not turn and do not cut your yarn.

Border

Helpful hint: we will be working down one side of the blanket, then across the bottom row (beginning chains), then up the second side of the blanket, the we will slip stitch into the 1st sc from the beginning of row 72, before starting on the final round of the border.

 

Round 1

sc into same sp, then sc into each row (of sc) all the way to the end of the, (sc, ch 2, sc) into the corner, then sc into next 45 sts, (sc, ch 2, sc) into the corner, then sc into each row (of sc) all the wat to the end, make one last corner by making a (sc, ch 2), into the 1st sc of the beginning of the row, and then ss into the 1st sc, ch 1, do not turn your work.

 

Round 2

Make a crab st into the same sp, then make 2 crab sts into the ch 2 corner, then make a crab st into each of the sc down the side (72 sts), make 2 crab sts into the next ch 2 corner, crab st into the next 44 sts, make 2 crab sts into the ch 2 corner, and the make a crab st into each of the sc down the other side (72 sts), make 2 crab sts into the last ch 2 corner, make crab sts into the next 44 sts, ss into the 1st crab st, cut yarn, weave in ends.

 

Helpful hint: work into the stitch from the row not around the stitches, if you work around the stitches you will see that it creates little holes that do not look nice – see photos below so that you understand what I mean.  It is a bit tricky and takes longer but the end finish is worth the effort.

 

Tassels

Have fun with these – I purchased some handmade wooden beads covered in bead-work and added them to the tassels I made.  There are some fabulous YouTube video tutorials out there if you do not know how to make a tassel.  I made one fat tassel for each corner.
