    Use a gauge of 1 hexagon (about 4-1/2 x 4 inch) to crochet this throw that measures 24 inch x 32 inch. Remember 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 less stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Download template for crochet stitches and abbreviations not explained below and the pattern.

    Special Stitches:

    2-dc Cl (2-dc cluster) (Yarn over, insert hook in ring and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) 2 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

    3-dc Cl (3-dc cluster) (Yarn over, insert hook in ring and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
