PATTERN MIDI COTTON / BIG COTTON – THROW
Needed: Midi Cotton / Big Cotton – needle and thread – scissors
Step 1 : Remove the cotton from the box. Find the beginning and place the cotton next to / in front of you.
Step 2 : Make a beginning loop by passing the cotton thread through the opening from below – photos 1,2 and 3. Repeat until you have made the desired number of loops. Look at the bottom of this pattern for the number of loops and balls per size. Don’t make the loops too tight, or the bottom of your plaid will be narrower than the top.
Step 3 : Place the row right in front of you. Now pull your cotton thread from the bottom through the side of the second loop of the row – picture 4. You have now made a new loop, standing upright. Continue like this until you reach the end of your row – photo 5. Row 1 is finished.
Step 4 : Keep going back and forth, making the number of rows that fit your size – picture 6. Continue until you are almost out of material. The number of balls that fit the size you want to make can be found at the bottom of this pattern.
Tip 1: How to place your throw when you are working on it. Make sure your cotton is in the direction you are going. So at the end of the row, lay your thread to the left or to the right. Pass the cotton through each loop so you’re making another loop. This is how you go back and forth. You don’t have to turn your work, it just stays flat on the table in front of you.
Tip 2: How to attach your yarn to a new ball This is how you attach the thread of a new ball: From both ends, fold the cotton back a bit and cut off 5 cm of the white stuffing. Fold the cotton over to the inside. Tuck (fidget 😊) one end into the other, and secure together with small stitches all around – photos 14, 15 and 16.
Step 5 : The last row. Pass your hand sideways through the loop you just made and the loop next to it, and pull the cotton through here from the right – pictures 7, 8 and 9. You have now turned 2 upright loops into 1 lying loop. Repeat to the end of the row. When you have 1 loop left, cut the cotton wide and pull the end of the cotton through the last loop, so that there is no loose loop left. Turn your work over, and tuck the end away at the back between another loop.
Step 6 : Take the end of the loop, fold the cotton outward and cut off a piece of the inner stuffing – photo 10. Now fold the cotton inward a bit so you don’t see a frayed edge – photo 11. Lay the end flat where you want to sew it on, somewhere on the back. Take a needle and thread and sew both the beginning and the end of the cotton in this way – photo 12.
Your homemade plaid is ready!
