OK…here’s my basic go to pattern for a couch throw. Mine typically measure about 3′ x 5’5″. I’m currently using Bernat Home Bundle in black & white with an L hook for my latest creation. The picture is about 1 1/2 skeins in.
You can use a single strand of #6-Super Bulky yarn with an L hook (7 8.8oz. Skeins) or 2 strands of #6-Super Bulky Yarn with a Q hook (7 8.8oz. Skeins) or 4 strands of #4-medium weight with a Q hook (about 16 7oz. Skeins). If using multi strands you can play with the colors!
Make a foundation chain measuring about 3 feet. In 2nd chain from hook insert DC, DC in every chain. At the end of row Chain 2 and turn, DC in top of every DC until end of row, Chain 2 turn and repeat this until it measures about 5 1/2 feet.
All done! Super quick and easy!
