Homespun® (Article #790)
3-4 colors, 8 balls total

Knitting Needles - Size 50 (25 mm) (’Speed Stix’)
Crochet Hook - Size K-10.5 (6.5 mm) (to attach fringe)

Due to the nature of the fabric when working with Speed Stix, gauge may vary throughout the knitting and is not crucial to this project.

Throw is worked with 4 strands held together throughout. All versions use 8 balls of yarn.

Finish with fringe.

Because of the texture of Homespun, the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or Fray CheckTM by Dritz®.
