PAT­TERN NOTES

Throw is worked in one piece work­ing in rows from the bot­tom up be­gin­ning with a chain­less foun­da­tion stitch, which com­pletes the foun­da­tion chain and first row of dou­ble cro­chet at once. Throw is made al­ter­nat­ing be­tween two ca­ble pan­els with rib­bing for the bor­der; mark­ers are used to in­di­cate when a sec­tion panel be­gins and ends. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first half dou­ble cro­chet un­less other­wise stated. Move mark­ers up as work pro­gresses.
