loops & threads® loops™ shaker throw

You’ll love how easy it is to make this Shaker Throw! You don’t need needles or a hook with Loops™ yarn. It’s self-striping, too, so no dropping or picking up new colors as you work. Just choose your favorite colors and check out the free pattern below to get started!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 48" x 60".

GAUGE: 5.5 sts x 7 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:

66 sts x 104 rows

Count out 66 loops.

Row 1: Work across the 66 loops as follows from right to left, *LK in each of the next 2 loops, LP into each of the next 2 loops; rep from * across to last 2 loops, LK into each of the last 2 loops. Do not turn.

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

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

Row 4: Working from left to right, *LP in each of the next 2 loops, LK into each of the next 2 loops; rep from * across to last 2 loops, LP into each of the last 2 loops. Do not turn.


Repeat Rows 1-4, 25 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.
