PAT­TERN NOTES

Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less other­wise stated. Each row in Tunisian cro­chet con­sists of a for­ward pass where stitches are picked up and a re­turn pass where stitches are worked off the hook. The loop re­main­ing on hook at end of re­turn pass is first stitch of fol­low­ing row. Right side of work is al­ways fac­ing. Throw is worked in strips, pick­ing up stitches from pre­vi­ous Squares. Fas­ten off yarn only at con­clu­sion of strip. For Throw, re­fer to Place­ment Di­a­gram for num­ber and type of Squares to make.
