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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Stitch Explanation: Sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased. NOTES: 1. Scarf is worked in wedge shaped sections changing color following the Color Sequence. The wedges are shaped by scs, hdcs and dcs. 2. The Scarf is not difficult to make, but it is very important that you read the instructions for each row carefully and that you keep track of which row you are on! 3. The color is changed on every other row. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Fasten off old color. 4. Long beginning and ending yarn tails are left when changing color. These yarn tails will be used to join the Bobbles to the Scarf. Yarn tails should be about 10 in. (25.5 cm) long. Color Sequence: Work *2 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 2 rows with C, 2 rows with D; rep from * for Color Sequence. Scarf With A and leaving a 10 in. (25.5 cm) beg yarn tail, ch 34.

Joining Bobbles to Scarf Beg with one group of yarn tails on Scarf. You will be making a cord with every other yarn tail in this group, for a total of 12 cords. For each cord, hold one yarn tail. Note that the strand of yarn is made of 4 thinner strands (plies) of yarn. Carefully untwist the strand so that you can work with just one of the thinner strands. Twist this one strand tightly in a clockwise direction, so that it begins to kink. Keeping the twisted strand taut, fold the strand in half, allowing it to twist around itself to make a cord. Draw one end of the cord through one contrast color Bobble and knot to secure. Repeat to make 12 cords, each with an attached contrast color Bobble, in each of the 4 groups of yarn tails. Weave in all rem yarn tails.

Gauge: 10 dc + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) 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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Stitch Explanation: dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased. NOTES: 1. Cardi is worked in one piece beg at lower edge. 2. When Cardi has reached armhole length, chs are worked for sleeves. You’ll need a separate strand of yarn to make the sleeve chs, so before beginning, cut a length about 3 yds. (3 m) long, and set it aside until you reach the yoke portion of the Cardi. Cardi Body Ch 74 (78, 84). Row 1 (RS): Dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as first dc), and in each ch across – 72 (76, 82) dc at the end of this row. Rows 2-6 (6, 7): Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, dc in each st across. Shape Yoke Next Row: Drop loop from hook, but do not fasten off. Next Row: From RS, sk first 15 (16, 18) sts, join a separate strand of yarn with sl st in next st, ch 22 (24, 26) for sleeve, sk next 6 sts along body for underarm, sl st in next st. Fasten off. Next Row: From RS, sk next 26 (28, 30) sts following the end of the ch for the first sleeve, join a separate strand of yarn with sl st in next st, ch 22 (24, 26) for sleeve, sk next 6 sts for underarm, sl st in next st. Fasten off. Pick up loop dropped at end of Row 6 (6, 7).

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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Stitch Explanations: dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased. hdc2tog (hdc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook – 1 st decreased. NOTES: 1. Each Pillow is made from 2 pieces, Front and Back. The Front and Back are crocheted together around the outer edges and stuffed before the seam is completely closed. 2. For all Pillows, fiberfill stuffing will show through the spaces between the sts. If desired, you can create fabric inserts for the crochet pieces.

LION BRAND® crochet hook size J-10 (6 mm) LION BRAND® large-eyed blunt needle

Gauge: 12 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. NOTES: 1. Afghan is worked in 4 Strips. The Strips are made of wedge shaped sections. The wedges are shaped with scs, hdcs and dcs, and change color following the Color Sequence. The Strips are sewed together to make the Afghan. 2. The color is changed on every other row. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Fasten off old color. 3. Cords and bobbles are worked separately, then attached to complete the Afghan. Color Sequence for Strips 1 and 3 Work *2 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 2 rows with C, 2 rows with D, 2 rows with E, 2 rows with F, 2 rows with G, and 2 rows with H; rep from * for Color Sequence.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, 3 sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc – 15 sc at the end of this rnd. Rnd 3: Ch 1, (sc3tog) 5 times; join with sl st in first sc – 5 sts. Fasten off. Attaching Bobbles Attach 16 Bobbles to each inner curve across long sides of Afghan – 3 groups of 16 Bobbles each along each side of Afghan. Across each short end of Afghan, attach 5 Bobbles at each end of each seam between Strips – 3 groups of 5 Bobbles each across each short end of Afghan. NOTES: 1. Each Bobble is attached to the Afghan with a cord. 2. Cords can be twisted cords, as explained in the instructions below, or a crocheted chain. 3. We used a yarn color that contrasted with the Bobble color to make each cord. To attach Bobbles with Twisted Cord Cut a 15 in. (38 cm) length of yarn in desired color. Gently separate the length of yarn into 4 strands. With one hand at each end of one strand, twist the strand until tightly twisted, then fold strand in half and let it twist back on itself. Knot ends about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from fold. From RS, insert hook through Afghan, then through fold of twisted cord. Draw fold of cord through edge of Afghan, forming a loop. Pull ends of cord through this loop, then pull to tighten. Sew Bobble to ends of cord. To attach Bobbles with Crocheted Chain If you’d prefer to make a simple crocheted chain to attach each Bobble, simply join yarn to Afghan with a sl st. Make a ch about 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) long, then fasten off. Sew Bobble to end of ch. Weave in ends. Abbreviations: beg = begin(ning)(s) ch = chain dc = double crochet hdc = half double crochet rep = repeat
