loops & threads® loops™ chevron shadows throw

This Chevron Shadows Throw combines vivid colors with oh-so-soft texture, and you’ll make it all without a hook or needles! That’s because it is worked with Loops™ yarn, so you’ll just pull one pre-formed loop through another to make each stitch. Check out the free pattern below to see how easy it really is!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 60" x 74".

GAUGE: 5.5 sts x 6 rows = 4".

SPECIAL STITCHES:

  • LK (Loop Knit): Reach through the next loop on your project, from front to back, then grab the next loop on your yarn, and pull it through.
  • LP (Loop Purl): Reach through the next loop on your project, from back to front, grab the next loop on your yarn, and pull it through.

PATTERN NOTES:

  • Rows are worked either right to left, or left to right, always with the right side of the work showing. You do not turn your project over at the end of the row.
  • Join a new ball by pulling both the last loop of the previous ball and the first loop of the new ball through the next stitch. When you reach this doubled stitch on the next row, pull the new loop through both loops as if they were one stitch.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Count out 81 loops.

Row 1: Work across the 81 loops as follows from right to left, *LK in next loop, LP in each of next 7 loops; rep from * to last loop, LK in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 2: Working from left to right, repeat Row 1.  

Row 3: Working from right to left, *LK in each of next 2 loops, LP in each of next 5 loops, LK in next loop; rep from * to last loop, LK in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 4: Working from left to right, repeat Row 3.

Row 5: Working from right to left, *LK in each of next 3 loops, LP in each of next 3 loops, LK in each of next 2 loops; rep from * to last loop, LK in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 6: Working from left to right, repeat Row 5.

Row 7: Working from right to left, *LK in each of next 4 loops, LP in next loop, LK in each of next 3 loops; rep from * to last loop, LK in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 8: Working from left to right, repeat Row 7.

Row 9: Working from right to left, *LP in next loop, LK in each of next 7 loops; rep from * to last loop, LP in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 10: Working from left to right, repeat Row 9. 

Row 11: Working from right to left, *LP in each of next 2 loops, LK in each of next 5 loops, LP in next loop; rep from * to last loop, LP in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 12: Working from left to right, repeat Row 11.

Row 13: Working from right to left, *LP in each of next 3 loops, LK in each of next 3 loops, LP in each of next 2 loops; rep from * to last loop, LP in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 14: Working from left to right, repeat Row 13.

Row 15: Working from right to left, *LP in each of next 4 loops, LK in next loop, LP in each of next 3 loops; rep from * to last loop, LP in last loop. Do not turn.

Row 16: Working from left to right, repeat Row 15.

Repeat Rows 1-16, 6 more times.


Finishing:

Starting at the opposite end of the row as the working yarn, reach through the first loop and grab the second loop, pull it through the first loop, *reach through the loop you just pulled through, grab the next loop, pull this loop through the last loop; repeat from * across until only one loop remains. Cut yarn next to last loop. Use a sewing needle and thread to secure last loop.
