GAUGE

INSTRUCTIONS

STITCHES USED
Chain (ch), double crochet (dc), half double crochet (hdc), single crochet
(sc), slip stitch (sl st)

SPECIAL TERM
shell: (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in indicated stitch or space.

NOTE
1. Pay close attention when you reach the end of a row. You only turn at the end of every other row.
2. To change to color A in final st, work last hdc in B to last yarn over (3 loops remaining on hook). Remove A loop from stitch marker and place on end of hook. Draw A through final 3 loops of B, completing the hdc.
3. Carry unused color along side of work.

HELPFUL
1. For two fewer tails to weave in, leave 11"/28cm tails of A at beg and end of throw and incorporate them into the fringe.
2. Color A shells are always worked into ch-1 sps of color A shells, and color B shells are always worked into ch-1 sps of color B shells.

THROW
With A, ch 164.
Row 1 (RS): 2 dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as first dc), ch 3, sk next 7 ch, *(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch (shell made), ch 3, sk next 7 ch; repeat from * across, 3 dc in last ch; drop loop from hook and place on stitch marker, do NOT turn—19 shells and 6 dc.
Row 2 (RS): Join B with sl st in top of ch at beginning of previous row; ch 2, working over next ch-3 sp and into skipped foundation chs below, shell in 4th skipped foundation ch, *ch 3, working over next ch-3 sp, shell in 4th skipped foundation ch; repeat from * across, ch 1, hdc in last dc and change to A, turn—20 shells.
Row 3: Ch 3, 2 dc in first color A st below (this is the same st as the hdc was worked, at end of previous row), ch 3, sk next color B shell, *shell in ch-1 sp of color A shell below, ch 3, sk next color B shell; repeat from * across, 3 dc in top of color A turning ch below; drop loop from hook and place on stitch marker, do NOT turn—19 shells and 6 dc.
Row 4: Draw B through top of ch at beginning of previous row; ch 2, working over next ch-3 sp, shell in ch-1 sp of next color B shell below, *ch 3, working over next ch-3 sp, shell in ch-1 sp of next color B shell below; repeat from * across, ch 1, hdc in last dc and change to A, turn—20 shells.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
Rows 6–145: Repeat Rows 4 and 5 seventy times.

FINISHING
Fringe
Using corresponding colors, cut strands 21"/53.5cm long. Holding 7 strands together, fold fringe in half. Using crochet hook, *insert hook from WS to RS into center st st base of shell, pull through fold of strands (loop), insert ends into loop and pull tight against edge; repeat from *, working into base of shells along entire lower edge. Repeat, working fringe into center top of shells, along entire upper edge.
Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.
