Designer Darla Fanton combines three soft, springtime colors of merino-blend Country in her Antigua Throw. The asymmetry of the color placement paired with the easy chain and double crochet stitches, work so well in this porch-perfect throw.

In ripple pattern, 1 pattern repeat = 4 1/4”/11cm and 5 rows = 4 1/2”/11.5cm. Notes: Throw fabric is very stretchy. Gauge is after throw has been blocked. One pattern repeat is one ‘ripple’, measure from top point of one ripple to top point of next ripple.
Gauge is not critical for this project.
The ripples formed by the pattern stitch become more evident after four or more rows have been worked.
NaturallyCaron patterns are now available at Yarnspirations
